    Berwick Vs Mornington

    I am trying to narrow A large group of residential areas to just a handful prior to our planned move to Melbourne in Summer 2014 (uk summer). top of my list is Berwick, without visiting it seems ideal but I would like to some have back ups just in case. How does Mornington compare with the area of Berwick? Thanks in advance
  2. [h=5]Another Meet-Up planned for the SE Melbourne area: Sunday 28th April 2013 - Wilsons Botanical Gardens, Berwick. Who is coming along? Will probably go for the usual 12 noon meet up and bring along a picnic or BBQ. Thought it only fair to go for a Sunday as we have a fair few members who haven't been able to make our Saturday meets so far.[/h]

  4. I think they forgot to add that Berwick and Mornington has the most Brits Migrants make up about 70 per cent of the population in some Melbourne suburbs, provoking worries about an increasingly divided city. High migrant intakes in the past five years, especially from Asia, continue to transform the multicultural landscape of various pockets of Melbourne. For the first time, the Australian-born population of Springvale has dropped below 30 per cent. One in five were born in Vietnam and one in 10 are from India. Barely a quarter of Clayton's residents were born in Australia. Chinese, Indians and Malaysians are the leading migrant groups there. In Box Hill, migrants comprise well over half the population, almost one in four born in China and Hong Kong. Almost 60,000 Indians and more than 35,000 Chinese settled in Melbourne in the five years to 2011, an analysis of the latest census data by Monash University reveals. By contrast, the net number of British-born migrants coming here was only 7000. Monash migration expert Dr Bob Birrell said he was concerned Melbourne was becoming a more divided city as recent migrants were forced to find cheaper housing in suburbs that already had high concentrations of people from non-English speaking backgrounds. "Thus the concentrations of these residents tends to increase, and that is a major problem of provision of services such as education and health to cope with this diversity of people," he said. Fellow Monash academic and researcher Prof Andrew Markus said it was no surprise new migrants congregated in certain areas. "It's always been the case that on arrival, immigrants will want to settle in areas where they can get services which they recognise and have friends who speak their own language," he said. The migrant trend has been reversed in some inner suburbs as locally born people with higher incomes buy housing new arrivals can't.

    Flood Risk on Berwick Development

    Casey Council has expressed concern over unresolved flooding and drainage issues at the undeveloped low-lying land located at Greaves Rd/ Centre Rd / Homestead Rd / Golf Links Rd, Berwick adjacent to a major Melbourne Water drainage channel. Despite repeated warnings from the council about unresolved drainage and potential flooding issues, the Growth Areas Authority is proceeding with extensive planning for additional urban development on the site. A range of issues remain unresolved including drainage and the economic feasibility of the development. Melbourne Water is also yet to commit support for the project due to these concerns. The council believes that Melbourne Water’s resources should currently be directed towards resolving the numerous drainage issues in established residential areas that became apparent in the recent February floods, instead of being diverted to solving flooding issues for land that is yet to be developed. The authority has resolved to continue the planning process, including landowner consultation despite the range of unresolved issues concerning the feasibility of the development.
