A positive change in the making.

Blackburne’s approach for Ocean Village Shopping centre is to create a new neighbourhood centre the community can enjoy. After acquiring the site in 2022, we have undertaken extensive consultation to understand the needs of the community, which has identified a requirement for a renewed centre, based on the current state of the site. Drawing on the community’s feedback, we are developing a plan for a sustainable development that caters to everyday needs, whilst providing social amenity and high quality housing options.

A new neighbourhood centre

Renewal for City Beach.

To preserve the character of local suburbs, the Town of Cambridge is encouraging renewal of neighbourhood centres such as Ocean Village. The site has long been identified as suitable for a new neighbourhood centre, which will include extensive landscaping, inviting public spaces, a high-quality supermarket, diverse dining options and appropriate housing. Blackburne’s plan is to work towards a more social and economic future for the local community.
