Frankston City is a predominantly residential municipality in Melbourne’s outer southern suburbs. The City features well established residential areas, recent growth areas such as Carrum Downs, Skye, Sandhurst and Langwarrin, rural residential areas such as Langwarrin South and rural and extractive industry uses.
Frankston City has experienced significant population growth in the post war era, with areas such as Karingal, Frankston Heights and Frankston North developing in the 1960s and 1970s and Carrum Downs and Langwarrin developing in the 1980s through to the present. The primary housing market role that the City has played over this period was to provide affordable home owning opportunities for families and prospective families from the outer southern suburbs of Melbourne. After a number of decades of strong growth, the City is reaching the end of its development phase, with limited development opportunities available in the recent growth areas of Carrum Downs and Langwarrin. The Frankston Central area, which includes the Frankston Metropolitan Activity Centre, functions as the major regional retail and commercial centre for outer southern Melbourne and the Mornington Peninsula, is set to increase its level of residential development. This will primarily take the form of medium density housing capitalising of the area’s strategic location.
