The Precinct Structure Plan (PSP) for Cranbourne East has received planning approval. A 589 hectare site is projected to accommodate 20,000 people over the next 15 years. The masterplan includes 6,600 housing lots, local town centres, schools, kindergartens, retirement villages and amenity spaces. Discussions between the Growth Areas Authority (GAA), Casey Council and developers have resulted in Cranbourne East being the first plan to use concurrent land rezoning and subdivision approval processes. The subsequent time savings in subdivision and alignment of these processes is set to become a template for future PSP developments.

Precinct Structure Plans are part of the State Government’s strategy to accommodate population growth and housing demand. They are usually designed to accommodate between 10,000 and 30,000 people. Preparation of the plans is overseen by the Growth Areas Authority.

A map showing the location of Precinct Structure Plans is available here.
