- The Task:
Smart Planning and Design has played a key role in developing Victoria’s first fully integrated health precinct situated in one of the largest urban growth corridors in Australia.
The economic and social bene ts of this project to the region are significant. Economically the project will be one of the largest urban development projects in the area with over 1600 construction full time equivalent jobs being created per year for the initial two- year construction period. In total over 2,800 new local jobs will be directly and indirectly generated post construction.
Socially this project will provide a truly integrated range of world class health facilities spanning from hospital emergency to child care to acute care and aged care, all co-located in the one precinct and serving a rapidly growing urban area. It is designed from the ground up to support a new level of community health and well-being.
Once complete HealthCite Cardinia will comprise an integrated Community Health Precinct comprising a full range of health facilities from Hospital, Aged Care, Retirement Village to Child Care.
The purpose of the amendment is to facilitate the delivery of the Cardinia Health Precinct Project. The Cardinia Road Employment Area Precinct Structure Plan (the ‘PSP’) concept is based on the introduction of the service sector as opposed to large format industrial and distribution ‘sheds’ in order to deliver more employment in a shorter period of time and more employment relevant to residents of Cardinia Shire. A key focus of the PSP is employment generation,which is the key focus of the Cardinia Health Precinct project.
Smart Planning and Design undertook:
- Preliminary Precinct Design;
- Liaison with Council and State Government;
- Preparation and lodgement of Amendment C225 documentation; and
- Preparation of Planning and Design Guidelines.
