They’re rising to the occasion

A NEW housing estate that will eventually be home to more than 4000 people was officially launched in Clyde North on Saturday.
Planning Minister Justin Madden and City of Casey mayor Lorraine Wreford opened the 116-hectare Selandra Rise.
More than 500 people came along for celebrations and the first release of 24 lots.
The estate offers blocks ranging from 213 to 620 square metres. It will boast a town centre with a supermarket, cafes and specialty shops, as well as a dedicated sporting district, playgrounds and two kilometres of walking tracks and bike paths.
The estate has been designed in partnership with Stockland, the Growth Areas Authority, Planning Institute of Australia and the City of Casey to create a healthy, engaged lifestyle for residents. It is being heralded by industry bodies as one of the most thoroughly planned and well designed residential community ever developed in Victoria.
Andrew Whitson, Stockland’s general manager Victoria said the community offered a healthy lifestyle.
The estate will eventually have a state primary school, and maternal health, a retirement village and aged care facilities are also on the long-term agenda.
Land prices start at $143,000 and house and land packages at $304,752.
