Chirnside Park Updates
What's being planned?
In March 2020 Summerset purchased land on Manchester Road, Chirnside Park.
Summerset are an established aged care and retirement living owner and operator. With over 30 villages in New Zealand, Summerset are now expanding their highly successful model into Australia.
Their vision for the land at Chirnside Park is to create a vibrant, contemporary and diverse residential community combining an aged care home, assisted living apartments, independent living homes together with a residential neighbourhood.
The Summerset retirement village will be inclusive, providing superior accommodation and services catering to diverse resident needs and preferences. Summerset plan to create a place that is both timeless and contemporary, with landscaping and architectural expression complementing Chirnside Park’s local character.
Where are we now?
An application for a planning permit has been lodged with the Shire of Yarra Ranges and is currently under assessment. The application will be subject to public notice directed by Council after the webinar.

Please note that following the webinar, Yarra Ranges Council requested that Summerset update the Planning Permit documentation to indicate that Hedwig Drive is to connect through our site as a two way road. We note that in the webinar and the webinar slides this was indicated as a one way road which was correct at the time. This change has been made at the council’s request and is reflected in the documentation which will go to Public exhibition.
