Concept plans released for an 87-lot development for Lang Lang have roused concerns amongst local residents, who fear their ‘small country town’ will be the next to be absorbed by developers.

Just over 21 hectares at 35 McDonalds Track Lang Lang has been offered up for sale by Biggin & Scott, advertised as a “commuter friendly parcel of residential development just 20 minutes to Cranbourne.”

“This residential 21.2 hectare site is optimally located allowing fantastic access northbound to Cranbourne, Pakenham, Berwick, Dandenong and Melbourne or southbound to Phillip Island,” the Biggin & Scott website reads.

“Concept development plans have been prepared which indicate a yield of approximately 87 lots at an average size of 2,000m2, which will cater to a wide variety of home buyers looking for space and fresh air.”

Other perks touted by the real estate agent include a strong local residential market, a gateway to Phillip Island and surf beaches and close proximity to the proposed future Kooweerup Airport.

The parcel of land was rezoned from Farming Zone to Low Density Residential Zoning by the council following approval from the Minister for Planning last year.

News of the concept residential development, which is still subject to council approval, elicited mixed responses from locals.

“[Lang Lang is] clearly not a ‘small country town’ anymore,” Samantha Pickering said.

“I almost feel like I’m in Pakenham with all these new estates. I can’t wait to move out of town!”

“When is it going to stop?” Louise Chamberlain added.

Concerns were also raised around the impacts on existing infrastructure in the township.

“Where are all of these families going to send their children to kindergarten and school?” Cassie Ireland said.

“[They’re] not all going to fit into the existing ones; zero infrastructure in place just like Drouin where people had to travel long distances to access education and childcare.”

Biggin & Scott Land have been contacted by The Gazette for comment.

The site is offered for sale by Expressions of Interest closing 12pm on Friday 20 July.
