The 775-hectare East Werribee precinct is the largest undeveloped surplus State Government land in metropolitan Melbourne and includes the 400-hectare site known as the East Werribee Major Development Parcel.
The Committee for Wyndham’s Think Ahead! roundtable recently identified this as one of five priority areas that will ensure Wyndham’s growing and diverse community is well placed for the future.
Since July 2019 when the State Government decided to not progress with their preferred tenderers proposal, there has been little/no communication on what the Government proposes for the site.
Currently, a portion of the site is used as a medical and technology hub with two major hospitals, a private medical specialist centre, three universities and health research operating from East Werribee.
The Victorian Planning Authority completed a Structure Plan (PSP) for the East Werribee Employment Precinct in October 2013. It was designed to guide the development of a mixed-use precinct that would create opportunities for 58,300 local jobs as well as homes, key infrastructure, advanced integrated water cycle management, sports facilities, and local parks.
East Werribee is important for Wyndham. We need to know what is planned and how our residents and local businesses can contribute to its development.
