The proposed development of Clarkefield into a carbon neutral sustainable settlement is an exciting opportunity to create a unique living experience in a picturesque rural setting.
Clarkefield is a small town located 46km northwest of Melbourne with a population of just over 1,000 people. With the increasing demand for housing in the area, there is an opportunity to expand the town and create a sustainable settlement that is carbon neutral. This will be achieved by leveraging the existing road and rail infrastructure and developing 350 lots for a potential future population of up to 840 people.
The proposed development will include a mixture of building envelopes and lot sizes, with a focus on lots less than 300sqm. Our team played a key role in preparing the assessment for the proposed subdivision, assisting the project team with the preparation of the subdivision application, and inputting into the building envelopes.
The development of Clarkefield has the potential to offer a unique living experience for residents, with a focus on sustainability and a sense of community.
The town is situated in a picturesque rural setting, surrounded by natural bushland and farmland. The development will seek to preserve this natural beauty, whilst still providing modern amenities to residents.
The expansion of Clarkefield will not only provide much-needed housing in the area, but it will also create job opportunities and boost the local economy. With its proximity to Melbourne, Clarkefield has the potential to become a popular destination for commuters, providing a peaceful and sustainable alternative to city living.
Our team is proud to have played a role in preparing the assessment for the proposed subdivision and we look forward to seeing the development of Clarkefield come to fruition.
