"Booming family oriented area without adequate infrastructure/planning"

I grew up in Clyde on a farm. Over the past 10 years I have watched the huge growth in the population of Clyde with new estates and new homes popping up all over the 'Clyde corridor'. Early on land was reasonably priced, but it has gone up in recent years where you pay more for smaller lot sizes probably due to the suburb neighbouring the more prestigious postcode and amenities of Berwick.

Clyde is a good spot for young families who can't afford to buy in Berwick and don't want to live in Cranbourne or as far out as Pakenham. You're close to the many top primary and secondary schools in Berwick. Fountain Gate in Narre Warren has decent shopping and also has a Village cinemas, it's about a 15 min drive from Clyde. There is no public transport at all in Clyde at the moment. Closest is Berwick station- about 10 mins drive.

However, peak hour and school pickup traffic is a nightmare. With seemingly never ending roadworks happening on Clyde Road because the 2 lane road can't handle the volume of new residents that need to use it daily.
  • traffic congestion/ no public transport
  • not many shopping options other than basic supermarkets
  • new land developments everywhere
