A vibrant new community for Rowville
, ,

We are very pleased to announce that the rezoning of our newest residential project, Bankside, a vibrant new community in Rowville, has now been approved.

Over the past 3 years, Pask Group closely worked with Knox Council, State Government, local residents and a trusted consulting team on an application to rezone the Kingston Links Golf Course for ‘Residential Development’, following its designation as a ‘Strategic Investigation Site’ in the Knox Housing Strategy 2015.

In order to achieve the above outcome, we needed to first obtain preliminary support from Knox Council for an amendment to the current Knox Planning Scheme, then commence a formal application process, which required the team to address a series of key criteria relating to native vegetation, ecology, traffic as well as local and state infrastructure contributions.

Throughout this time, it was also paramount that the local Rowville community and other stakeholders were kept well informed of the process. This was addressed via a series of consultation sessions, which enabled all participants an opportunity to speak with Council, key members of the project’s consulting team and submit feedback, which assisted in shaping the final outcome.

Over 800 homes are planned for Bankside as well as two mixed use precincts and district sporting facilities. The rehabilitation of Corhanwarrabul Creek, together with the extensive open space network, linking the Creek precinct to the Stamford Park Wetlands, will provide convenient access for all residents to a unique community asset for the City of Knox.

We expect to commence the first stage of earthworks in the coming months and release the first stage to market in 2019.

Second Acolade for Napoli Park!

We are thrilled to advise that Providence’s Napoli Park received the Landscape Award at the 2013 UDIA (Vic) Awards for Excellence.

This award is granted in recognition of the outstanding characteristics in respect to landscaping and reviews elements such as the use of innovative landscaping methods and ideas.

Napoli Park is not only beautiful; it is a multi-functional space of 1.8 hectares which has been provided early in the development to benefit the first residents to move into Providence.

The combination of active and passive areas with a mix of walking paths through gardens, seatng, protected spaces and opportunities for community and family gatherings set this park apart from others in the area and additionally provides a fantastic amenity for Providence residents and the broader Hume area.
