This Coldstream property, with a street address of 84 Killara Road, is arguably another of those sites.
Coldstream is about 38 kilometres from the CBD, near a disused train station and a small shopping centre, The Lodge. More sophisticated amenity including schools and offices are at neighbouring Lilydale.
In recent years some groups have been advocating to extend Coldstream’s boundary for the benefit of its small businesses, and so as to have enough people to support a large school.
They argue that by comparison, suburbs further from the city than Coldstream, like Pakenham, in the south-east, and Melton in the west, are seeing an abundance of new development, which is improving the quality of services following people to those areas.
