Collie congratulates ID_Land on its planning permit from the City of Greater Geelong (Council) for the subdivision of approximately 40 hectares of land in the Horseshoe Bend Precinct of the Armstrong Creek Urban Growth Area (ACUGA).  The ACUGA is the largest growth area outside metropolitan Melbourne covering an area of 2,500 hectares and comprising seven precincts.  The area is expected to accommodate approximately 22,000 dwellings when complete.

The approved subdivision consists of approximately 540 lots including both conventional and medium density.  A large public open space reserve that also functions partly as a drainage corridor traverses the site from east to west and will be a key feature of the development.  Shared paths through the site will connect to the broader public open space network and planned activity centres in the immediate and larger growth area.

Collie worked with the client and project team to prepare the planning permit application.  Collie was involved in extensive liaison with Council and the project team throughout the assessment of the application.  Numerous meetings were held with Council officers from a range of departments to resolve issues relating to traffic, public open space, native vegetation and drainage.

Collie has a continuing involvement in the development of ACUGA and we look forward to seeing this growth area evolve over the coming years.
