Overview

Officer is a fast-growing suburb in Melbourne’s south-east, approximately 50kms from Melbourne CBD. To support this growth, we are delivering a new residential development, new infrastructure, and community spaces, as well as supporting the development of a future town centre.

The Town Centre has been an important part of our vision for Officer. It is proposed that when complete, it will feature a mix of retail outlets such as supermarkets and specialty stores, mixed-use office spaces and new homes – all conveniently located close to the Officer Train Station and Princes Highway.

The foundations of the Town Centre have been laid, with work to-date focusing on large infrastructure items including a rail underpass, key road connections and a large stormwater tank. We also delivered Town Centre Park in 2019 which features ahigh-quality urban square, lawn, and tiered seating.

Further updates will be provided as the Town Centre development plans progress.

Approach

 

The project master plan for Officer Town Centre includes:

  • The Cardinia Shire Civic Centre
  • Office and retail buildings
  • Community facilities
  • Medium and higher density residential lots
  • Public parks and urban squares

The future town centre will be spread out over seven hectares and has a mix of commercial and retail uses including a supermarket, along with other specialty shops and services. 

The future town centre is located adjacent to Officer Train Station, a future bus interchange, and within metres of the Princes Highway. 

Once complete, it will be highly accessible for the local community, including other emerging suburbs in Melbourne’s outer ring.

The supply of affordable housing in the town centre is central to our aim of creating diverse communities located close to public transport, schools, jobs and amenities.

Officer South Employment Precinct

We are also involved in the master-planning for the Officer South Employment Precinct, which will deliver a State-significant industrial and commercial precinct, incorporating housing, that caters for the area’s future employment needs. 

The Victorian Planning Authority (VPA) is leading the preparation of a structure plan for the precinct, working in partnership with Cardinia Shire Council, State government agencies and service authorities. This will be open for community consultation in mid-late 2023.
