Community continues to Rise at Springfield

Ipswich City Council has given the green light for another 386 residential lots as well as a new road and park at the fast growing Springfield Rise estate at Spring Mountain.

The lots will form Village 11 of the Lendlease estate and adjoin Village 13 to the south, conservation land to the north, Villages 10 and 12 to the west and future Village 14 to the east.

The approval comes not long after the popular estate notched up a major milestone, recently selling its 1,600th lot.

Ipswich City Council planning and development spokesman Cr David Morrison said the development meant jobs for Ipswich.

“This development will provide a range of living options with lots to range in size from 181 square metre terrace style lots to the more traditional 1,008 square metre lots,” he said.

“Having a diverse range of housing options is important to keep houses in Ipswich affordable.

“As well, just over one hectare of land has been earmarked for a community park.

“The exciting part about this site is not only that it connects to White Rock Conservation Estate but also that it is elevated, which means it can be used as a community lookout.”

Springfield Rise at Spring Mountain launched in 2016 and will deliver about 4,000 homes across a 415-hectare site.

It will include more than 50 hectares of open space, including 15 neighbourhood parks and bushland reserves and neighbour the region’s largest sporting fields.

A new sales centre and display village is also set to open at Springfield Rise at Spring Mountain mid-2018.

Lendlease Communities general manager for Queensland Guy Gibson said it would be the largest display village in south-east Queensland, with 56 homes on display.
