The Craigieburn Precinct is located approximately 25kms north of Melbourne’s CBD in Hume’s Northern Growth Corridor and includes Craigieburn and a small portion of Roxburgh Park.

The Precinct is a contrast of communities, from the older well-established neighbourhoods surrounding and south of Craigieburn Central, to the newer housing estate areas of Highlands and Aitken Hill developed over the past 10 years.

The Precinct consists of a number of community services and facilities, with four community centres, the Hume Global Learning Centre – Craigieburn, and several sports facilities. Open space is scattered throughout the Precinct. Mt Ridley Conservation Reserve flowing into Malcolm Creek Linear Park is the largest conservation area within the Precinct, which is valued strongly by the community and will continue to experience high usage.

The priority in this Precinct is to increase the amount of community services and community infrastructure in line with the population growth while ensuring that the specific service needs of existing communities are still met. Two community facilities have been identified for the new community in the Craigieburn West Precinct Structure Plan, that will be developed over the next 10 years.

The key recommendations from the Draft Community Infrastructure Plan for this Precinct are to:

The older open spaces in Craigieburn will require a refresh in coming years to meet community needs and expectations, especially in areas where redevelopment is likely to occur. Craigieburn is well served by sporting infrastructure, so increased provision of social recreation, walking and cycling connections and access to natural areas should be the focus of investment.
