Tract were engaged by Dennis Family Corporation to provide a full suite of planning services to assist in the development of Burnside Activity Centre. Burnside is located in Melbourne’s outer western growth corridor, and has the potential to develop into a major mixed use activity centre to serve the areas growing population.
Tract have prepared concept plans, lodged and coordinated planning scheme amendments, and coordinated planning permit applications for retail extensions. A key focus of our work is preparing concepts for a new Main Street based retail development and associated urban plaza that acts as the community focal point.
We have also assisted in the advocacy to a planning panel setup to consider a major expansion that includes office, community and medium density housing uses, as well as assisting at VCAT. A major element of the project is a Masters Store, a new format hardware and homewares store that opened in early 2011 as the second store in Melbourne.
