Questions & Answers about the Stamford Park Redevelopment

Where is Stamford Park?

Council’s Stamford Park site is located at 2 Emmeline Row Rowville, just north of the Stud Park Shopping Centre. The site is bordered by the Kingston Links Golf Course and Rowville residential area to the south, the Kingsley Close industrial estate to the north and Corhanwarrabul Creek and Caribbean Gardens Estate to the west. Land abutting the site at 962 Stud Road is privately owned and is to be developed by Australand for commercial development.

Who owns Stamford Park?

Knox City Council owns the majority of the land at Stamford Park. In 2009, Council sold 4.8 hectares to a developer for the construction of a commercial precinct facing Stud Road. As part of the deal, Council also obtained an 0.6 hectare portion of land at the eastern edge of the homestead from the adjoining owner to provide a larger buffer and garden. In 2015, Council sold a further 6.35 hectare parcel of land to Stockland for residential development.

What is Knox Council's plan for Stamford Park?

Council recognises the need for a mix of community recreation, leisure and housing uses on site. The area sits within the Scoresby Rowville Employment Precinct, a special precinct set aside to encourage significant investment and employment opportunities in Rowville and the region. Council plans to redevelop the Stamford Park site over the next three to five years into a multi-use precinct comprising commercial, residential, public recreation and open space.

How will the redevelopment be funded?

Knox Council's objective is for the Stamford Park redevelopment to be self funding using proceeds from the sale of some portions of land at the site. Council also acknowledges the significant financial contributions of Melbourne Water and Parks Victoria to infrastructure at Stamford Park.

Will there be an environmentally sustainable approach to development of the site?

A key objective of the redevelopment is to consider environmental sustainability. This will be achieved through a number of measures including water harvesting; solar power, environmentally sensitive design and using recycled materials. The Stamford Park Residential Estate will be the first certified Greenstar Community in the City of Knox.

When will the residential estate be offered for sale?

Stockland intends to construct the estate in stages with commencement of construction in 2017. The first homes at Stamford Park should be completed by mid 2019.

Stockland have set up an expression of interest web page for the residential estate.
