Casey Central Town Centre is located midway between the Fountain Gate Narre Warren CBD and the Cranbourne Town Centre.
Casey Central Town Centre is a young centre in its early stages of development. The Town Centre is characterised by two main development areas:
- The northern section, which currently accommodates the Casey Central Shopping Centre, is currently in the early stages of development (also known as the ’Casey Central Precinct’).
- The southern section is a ‘Greenfield’ site that is currently being used as a market garden.
This position allows the Centre to become a well planned centre, consistent with Melbourne 2030 aspirations.
The Casey Central Town Centre will provide people with opportunities to work, shop, live and attend leisure activities. Developing a high quality, accessible and attractive Town Centre will require an emphasis on good access to public transport, high quality intensive land use and high quality landscaping.
Specifically, the ‘Casey Central Precinct’ will contribute to the overall Town Centre vision by developing as a compact, human scaled, connected, safe and walkable environment that will conjure a unique sense of place for its users and pride of place for its local residents. This Development Plan expresses how this aspiration can be achieved within this Precinct.
In addition to this Development Plan which deals specifically with the Casey Central Precinct, a Structure Plan is being developed to guide the future growth of the southern portion of the Town Centre. The Structure Plan and Development Plan are based on a Directions Paper adopted by Council on 21 December 2004.
