Collie has assisted Stockfield in obtaining town planning approval for the subdivision of land in Palmers Road, Truganina.
The approved subdivision (known as the Highbrook Precinct) will comprise 176 dwellings with a mix of conventional and medium densities and a waterway drainage reserve which will also be used as an area of linear open space, with many of the lots fronting this reserve. The Highbrook Precinct will have a frontage to Palmers Road, a main north-south arterial road. The subdivision will also be well serviced with areas of public open spaces, schools and a neighbourhood activity centre all to be located nearby.
In gaining approval for the subdivision, Collie provided a range of services to Stockfield.
Collie provided the town planning services which included advising Stockfield on the application requirements, briefing expert consultants, preparing a town planning report and ultimately collating all the information and lodging the application to Wyndham City Council. Collie was also involved in a range of post lodgement tasks which included direct liaison with Council, coordinating and responding to a Council request for further information, all of which led to the issue of the planning permit for subdivision.
Collie was involved in a number of urban design tasks which included the design of the subdivision layout, the preparation of a house siting and design guide and the preparation of approved building envelope plans. By providing urban design services, Collie was able to prepare a functional lot layout a well as control the siting and built form arrangements of the dwellings, all of which achieves the character desired by Stockfield for the Highbrook Precinct.
In addition to the town planning and urban design services, Collie has provided landscape architecture services including the preparation of a landscape masterplan for the subdivision. Collie is also working on landscape plans for the waterway drainage reserve, which includes a shared linear path linking the Highbrook Precinct to existing development to the west and future development to the east.
Collie looks forward to the commencement of development of the Highbrook Precinct and its ultimate completion.
