Date: 
13 Jan 2011

A Development Opportunities and Constraints report, undertaken by consultants MacroPlan, has been released, providing a commentary with respect to the opportunities and constraints for property development at Doncaster Hill. The report, commissioned by Manningham City Council, provides and up-to-date assessment of Doncaster's socio-demographic profile and economic trends and drivers.

MacroPlan found that 'there remains significant underlying demand for the type of high-density mixed-use development envisaged by the Doncaster Hill Strategy. This demand will continue to grow with population changes and the return of more favourable property investment conditions.'

It also predicts that the area will develop into a vibrant urban community, as envisaged in the Doncaster Hill Strategy.

The report 'confirms the potential to create a state of the art, contemporary, sustainable, high density mixed-use village at Doncaster that enhances the social, environmental, economic and cultural characteristics of the centre.'
MacroPlan's 2010 report builds on the Development Opportunities and Constraints  report the consultancy undertook for Council in 2004.
