Development Summary

The Shire of Cardinia engaged ratio:traffic to prepare a Car Parking Precinct Plan (PPP) for the township of Beaconsfield.  The PPP is the next step in strategic planning for the township, following on from the Structure Plan which was adopted in 2013.

Project Characteristics

Beaconsfield is located 46 kilometres south-east of Melbourne on the southern foothills of the Dandenong Ranges.  The central township includes a thriving neighbourhood activity centre with a mix of retail and commercial activities.  The centre is set to grow as large-scale sites are redeveloped into more contemporary formats.  The Car Parking Precinct Plan provides a blueprint for managing the transport demands of both emerging development and existing car parking resources across the centre.

The Car Parking Precinct Plan has recently been placed by Council on public exhibition, allowing the Beaconsfield community to review the directions of the Plan and provide feedback.  Following the exhibition phase, the PPP will be finalised and formally adopted by Council.
