Liveability at Providence

How Providence creates Liveability

At Stockland, we know it takes a lot more than bricks and mortar to create connected, liveable and happy communities. The voice of our residents plays an important role as we continuously work towards curating inspiring places that offer a better way to live. ​

Our annual Liveability Survey measures what matters to our residents, so we can design our communities around what’s important. It invites feedback on all aspects of the community - from quality of built and natural environments, to how its design supports mental and physical wellbeing. ​

Earlier this year, Providence residents were invited to complete our 2023 Liveability Survey. The results have helped us understand the things our residents love, plus any areas we can improve on.​

We know we aren't perfect, but we're working on it! Here are a few things we're implementing to enhance the Providence lifestyle and community.​

Here’s what we’re doing to make Providence even better^

Initiative 1: Road Construction

We understand the importance of key road infrastructure in meeting the growing needs of the community and are committed to working proactively and constructively with relevant authorities on a number of projects, including the Barram's Road extension, which will be a dedicated entry on the Centenary Highway via Sandstone Boulevard.

In addition, Stockland is also working on a number of road projects within the community to improve connectivity for our residents.

Masterplan is indicative only and subject to change.

Initiative 2: Proposed Town Centre

The proposed Providence Town Centre development application has been lodged with Ipswich City Council. The proposal includes plans for a supermarket and around 12 speciality shops. We’re working closely with Council to progress the application and we'll keep you informed along the way. At this stage, there are no proposed construction timeframes.


Initiative 3: Opening of two new parks

With the recent opening of the Mine Memorial Park and Mirrigin Park currently under construction, with works progressing well, Providence will have 9 parks open by early 2024.

In addition, we will be finalising plans for the Centenary Sports Fields, Southern Wetlands and the Eastern District Park.
