Clyde is with the City of Casey located 48 kilometres South-East of Melbourne, which contains a rural-residential township that forms part of the Urban Growth Boundary. The Clyde growth area is approximately 1,154 ha, which is located on either side of the Pattersons Road.
The new suburb is bounded by Clyde-Five Ways Road to the west, Pound Road and Bells Road extension to the east, Hardys Road to the north and Ballarto Road to the south.
The Clyde Creek Precinct Structure Plan (PSP) was prepared to guide the future community, visitors and workers within the area. The PSP seeks to provide access to services, recreation, employment, shopping and transport infrastructure necessary to support quality of lifestyle and a mix of affordable housing.
The conservation and enhancement of the significant biodiversity area of the Clyde Creek corridor have been recognised, which integrates the stormwater design and open space. A protected species of the Growling Grass Frog has been provided ponds and foraging areas along the Clyde Creek corridor and cultural heritage sites.
Clyde also has other Precinct Structure Plan areas to the north of the existing township. The Victorian Planning Authority (VPA) has prepared a Clyde North PSP that was approved by Minister for Planning in November 2011 through Amendment C186 to the Casey Planning Scheme.
The Clyde Creek Precinct Structure Plan PSP was prepared by Victorian Planning Authority (VPA) in consultation with the Casey City Council and was approved by the Minister for Planning in November 2014. The decision was officially gazetted in October 2014 under Amendment C186 to the Casey Planning Scheme, then further amended in October 2015.
“Clyde Creek is planned to be a community where a distinct urban form, characterised by a grid of high quality streets, is complemented by an extensive natural creek environment and park network. The Clyde Major Town Centre, planned immediate to the north of the potential future Clyde railway station, will deliver extensive services and facilities to the surrounding residential area.”
“Clyde Creek will be a place that residents and businesses are proud to call home, a place of significant housing choice, catering for a diversity of people, and a connected community through public transport, road-trail networks and integrated community hubs.”
“Significant biodiversity within the Clyde Creek corridor has been recognised through the conservation and enhancement of the Growing Grass Frog Category 1 habitat area. The prominent landform of the precinct, Clyde Creek, will form the key environmental, recreational and community spine of the future suburb. The topography of the precinct provides for attractive views and vistas.”
“Heritage values - both aboriginal and cultural heritage and post-contact heritage sites - have been identified and incorporated into the future urban structure of Clyde Creek Precinct.”
The existing zoning will be amended to provide for Urban Growth Zones, that will provide for a future urban structure and future development. The Clyde Creek Precinct Structure Plan provides for a diversity of streetscape, open space, local character and protection of the Clyde Creek Conservation Area that traverses the precinct.
Existing and proposed sports fields and parks are strategically located within the new residential areas. The major and minor town centre areas provide for social, retail and community infrastructure, with the largest located to the south west corner of the Precinct Structure Plan.
The Precinct Structure Plan provides the planning framework to facilitate the new mixed use community, new schools, sports and recreation areas and protect Clyde Creek.
Clyde Creek will be connected to public passenger transport, with a future train station to be built in proximity to the south west of the Clyde Township and the passenger train service will connect to Melbourne CBD.
The suburb will include a network of shared paths, linking the local parks and a new road network. A road network including a 6 lane (primary arterial) road along Pattersons Road and 4 lane (second arterial) road along Tuckers Road to facilitate vehicle access to the surrounding growth areas and Clyde North. Access to Berwick – Cranbourne Road to the west will provide a direct connection to the Princes Freeway, access to Melbourne CBD or eastern Victoria.
