Development Update


Information provided below is correct as at 21/01/2019.

Atherstone truly is ‘A Place on the Go’ with exciting construction activity happening in all directions! We’re delighted to bring you our latest update, highlighting the progress of civil construction, community infrastructure and amenity announcements. We thank you for your patience as we construct your new blocks.

Please take this opportunity to update your conveyancer, bank, and builder with current settlement forecast dates.

Development to date

Atherstone continues to develop and grow into a thriving community. There’s a lot happening across the project with the opening of the bridge on Bridge Road, Cobblebank Station designs being released, and all stages within the Settlers Creek, Wilton Fields, and Middle Park neighbourhoods under construction. Watch the drone footage filmed in August to get a bird’s eye view of the new Park Edge and Palara neighbourhoods, as well as all the fantastic existing amenity including Atherstone’s Western BACE, the regional play space, regional sports precinct, wetland, and the network of hike and bike trails, train station under construction, childcare centre, and future proposed neighbourhood activity centre, sports ovals and major town centre.

New Station at Cobblebank

Works on the Ballarat line is on track, as seen through recently completed duplicated track works at the Ferris Road rail crossing. Completion of the new train station at Cobblebank is underway, and is expected to be open this year. For more information on the new station at Cobblebank, please visit the following link

Wilton Fields Village Park

Our landscape architects are working closely with Melton City Council to finalise the design of Wilton Fields Village Park on Wimbledon Boulevard. The park will include a playground, BBQ and shelter. The adjacent Wilton Fields linear park will be constructed at the same time and is a major section of the hike and bike path that will soon connect from Ferris Road through to the Toolern Creek Regional Park and beyond.

We look forward to providing more updates once construction gets underway in Autumn.

Childcare centre

Construction is progressing well on Aspire Early Education Centre and is in its final stages, with coloured cladding panels installed on the childcare centre.

Construction is expected to be completed in March 2019, with an open day on 16 March 2019.

For further information and enquiries on the Aspire Early Education Centre, please email.
