Council has received a request from Australia Post to review the current locality boundary alignment between Pentland Hills and the west boundary of Bacchus Marsh to increase the size of the Bacchus Marsh Locality. This will enable Australia Post to better align postcodes for proposed mail delivery services. Furthermore, potential issues for emergency services have also been raised as this area of Pentland Hills can only be accessed from Bacchus Marsh and not from the freeway turnoff for Pentland Hills.
The land to the west of Korkuperrimul Creek is currently known as Pentland Hills, and the land to the east of the creek is known as Bacchus Marsh. The proposed boundary would follow the boundary of the current General Residential Planning Zone (GRZ2) to the west.
It is expected that the Underbank Estate development will provide approximately 1200 new home lots in the near future.
