Planning a new heart of Knox

We are planning for the future transformation of Council land between Burwood Highway and Lewis Park, next to Knox Westfield. A place for the community to live, work and play.

We are interested to hear from the community on what is important for you and what you would like the redevelopment of the site to provide.

The area will feature green spaces for recreation and relaxation and a mix of housing and employment opportunities, integrating with the natural beauty of the surroundings.

Council owns approximately 9 hectares of land between Burwood Highway and Blind Creek, next to Westfield Knox.  It is an important precinct because of its location and size. Council intends to see this land developed, primarily for higher density housing, to help create a ‘new heart of Knox’.

The future residential population is expected to be between 3000 and 5000 people. Council will plan for services to support the future population and is focused on ensuring future development is sustainable, high quality and resilient to the effects of climate change. The Council will also consider how social and affordable housing might be delivered as part of the future development.

There will be several stages to the project, and we expect development to occur over 20 years. We are currently at the early planning stage and have yet to confirm exactly how the development will proceed.  We are engaging early in the project when the development is at concept stage only and there will be opportunities for the community to have input along the journey.
