A NEW Melbourne suburb, 19 kilometres south-west of town, has been unveiled.

Truganina South will be developed on a 250 hectare block of land near Hoppers Crossing and in the council area of Wyndham which was recently identified as the country’s fastest growing.

Planning minister Matthew Guy (pictured, right) launched the suburb bound by Leakes, Palmers and Sayers roads, and, traveling west, farmland on the way to Derrimut Road.

The site is the first which will be developed within the suburb. It’s expected to have 2500 dwellings accommodating 7000 people.

Minister Guy said the new state Liberal government plans to release 50,000 new housing lots this year. As well as Truganina South, he has also recently approved Greenvale North and Greenvale West. These suburbs affect 363 hectares of land 20 kilometres north of the CBD. Upon completion the suburbs will include about 1570-dwellings. The new suburbs are also expected to house about 6000 people.

A 4000 lot suburb in Ballarat and high density developments in Coburg, Caulfield, Moonee Ponds and Yarraville have also been unveiled recently.
