Project Information

Project Summary

To increase investment opportunities and meet the changing needs of Casey’s community, Council is considering the development of the five hectares of underutilised land adjoining Bunjil Place and Fountain Gate Shopping Centre in Narre Warren – known as the Bunjil Place Precinct.

The site could provide a unique opportunity to build on the strong social and cultural focus created by Bunjil Place, with the potential to support greater diversity of employment, tourism, economic and social activity. The long-term project will take place over the next ten or more years.

Concept Master Plan

The Bunjil Place Precinct Concept Master Plan was endorsed by Council on the 20 June 2023. The endorsement of the Plan supports the redevelopment of the area which will help to transform the existing under-utilised car parking and open space into an exciting and viable high-density mixed-use precinct.

The plan recognises the essential role that car parking continues to play and will see parking retained in an alternate form. It also allows for a staged development approach, acknowledging that the development of the precinct may take ten or even twenty years to fully realise.

If delivered, the plan would positively contribute to the revitalisation of the broader Fountain Gate-Narre Warren activity centre and be consistent with the State and local planning framework. The sale and development of the land as envisioned in the Concept Master Plan is expected to bring several key benefits in line with Council’s various strategies and the Casey Community Vision 2031.

Next Steps

Council is currently preparing a commercial strategy to ensure optimal long term community benefit from the precinct. Any future sale of land will be subject to Council's Property Strategy which includes public notification and consultation.
