At Frasers Property Australia, we care about creating real places for real people. The Community Development Plan for The Grove can be obtained for The Grove Sales Centre and via the website (hyperlink to http://www.thegrove.com.au/) here. The Community Development Team from Frasers Property Australia will initially be working with residents to drive the Community Development Program at The Grove. As the community grows, we aim to see community leaders emerge and the connections between residents strengthen and blossom.
On completion, The Grove will be home to over 2600 homes, a neighbourhood community activity centre, two schools and a network of parks linked to Davis Creek and Werribee River.
The Little Growling Café, currently located in The Growling Grass Frog Park is a locally operated business that provides breakfast, lunch and snacks in a friendly community setting. This is a great place to come and meet your neighbours and the café regularly runs community activities and events. Their facility can be hired out for parties and events and they also provide catering services for local businesses and groups. Ph 0405 030 919

Climate Local climate for the region is predominantly temperate, influenced by proximity to the coastline and the regular occurrence of cold fronts and low pressure systems. Average Summer temperatures range from 12ºC to 25.7ºC with the hottest days typically occurring in January/February. Average Winter temperatures range from 5.1ºC to 14.9ºC with the coolest days typically occurring in July. There are several climate factors that The Grove residents should be aware of, so as to be better prepared in the event of an extreme weather event: • The location of the community is currently mapped in a bushfire prone area • The community is located in proximity to Davis Creek and Werribee River waterways however these pose limited flooding constraints and flood considerations have been incorporated into the community design • Projections indicate a significant increase in extreme heat events over 350C, increasing the risk of heat stress and fire weather days • Increased intensity of rainfall events may potentially pose access and egress risks (road closures) as well as drainage capacity issues.
