The Tucker Settlement Site is located in Carrum Downs and covers an area of approximately 17.4 hectares. Managed by Loddon Mallee Housing Services, the site currently consists of a mix of residential dwellings and lodgings set within a distinctive landscape setting.
Tract was engaged to develop an integrated residential master plan for the site that provides a mix of housing types including affordable housing, that responds sensitively to the sites distinctive landscape setting and heritage fabric and that integrates the site with the surrounding neighbourhood.
Tract responded to this brief by developing a master plan which provides for over 240 diverse lots. The layout has been designed to retain significant vegetation, protect areas of botanical significance, reflect the organic street network of the current settlement and provide convenient access to shops and services.
Some of the allotments proposed will be retained by Loddon Mallee Housing Services for the purposes of affordable housing. This housing will be used to provide accommodation for current residents on the site.
Tract continues to assist Loddon Mallee Housing Services by providing landscape services for public open spaces and streetscapes.
