_URBAN DESIGN FRAMEWORK APPROVED
NEIGHBOURHOOD ACTIVITY CENTRE
ARMSTRONG CREEK EAST PRECINCT
Newland Developers is developing the Armstrong Creek East Precinct – a significant portion of the planned 60,000–resident new growth area of Geelong.
For those you who know the Surf Coast Highway (Torquay Road) between Geelong and Torquay, Armstrong Creek crosses that Highway just south of the old Geelong Airport.
As part of the development of the East Precinct (future about 7,000 dwellings) there is a proposed neighbourhood activity centre (10,000 square metres retail / commercial floor space) at about the current intersection of Barwon Heads Road and Charlemont Road.
Newland Developers has been working for some time (with assistance from Collie, Clarke Hopkins Clarke and others) with the City of Greater Geelong, to prepare the ‘urban design framework’ (UDF) required under the precinct structure plan.
On 28 February 2013, the UDF was approved.
The next steps will involve the creation of superlots to enable the commencement of development of the centre, starting with a main-line supermarket an specialty shops.
The whole centre will be ‘main street’ based on a key new road intersecting with Barwon Heads Road – on its west side.
