Development Victoria

Providing housing diversity in the west

Taylors Lakes

About the project 

The site at 16a-24 Robertsons Road, Taylors Lakes is well located to transport, schools and other services, within close proximity to the Watergardens Shopping Centre, Watergardens Railway Station and Taylors Creek Reserve.

A residential subdivision of 171 lots ranging between 250m2 and 600m2 has been approved for the site. Approximately 20 per cent of the lots are proposed to be less than 300m2 in size, providing opportunities for more diverse housing. 

The development will also deliver a new generously sized park along McCubbin Drive measuring 3600m2 that will be designed in consultation with council to meet the community’s recreation needs.

History of the site  

The 9.1-hectare site was purchased by the Department of Education and Training (DET) in the early 1990s for a school but was not used for this purpose and remained vacant. It was declared surplus by DET in 2013 and has been rezoned, enabling Development Victoria to acquire the site to subdivide the land for new homes with close access to great amenity.

Community engagement  

Development Victoria engaged with the Taylors Lakes community in late 2017 to provide information and seek the community’s views on the site’s proposed subdivision and park design. 

During engagement, a number of local residents suggested it would be desirable to have larger blocks on McCubbin Drive to provide an improved interface with the existing housing. Development Victoria listened to this feedback from the community and in response has incorporated larger sized lots into the planning along McCubbin Drive.

Development Plan

The Taylors Lakes Development Plan was publicly advertised in June 2018. The Development Plan was approved by Brimbank City Council on 31 October 2018. Click here to see the Development Plan.
