11 hectare development approved for Melbourne Harbour

Planning approval has been given for a vast expansion project in Melbourne with Minister for Planning Matthew Guy giving the green light for extensions to the Wyndham Harbour project. The scheme is destined for an 11 hectare plot and will include 200 residential housing lots, 200 apartments and 27 terrace homes, 2 new public beaches and a Marina Square, complete with restaurants, cafes and a convenience store. The 1,000 berth marina will be developed with 10km extensions of gas and water mains and reticulated sewage. Guy’s approval also fast tracks a ferry service link to the Docklands and CBD.

The Minister for Planning commented: “Expanding the Wyndham Harbour development will assist in providing a critical mass of population to make a commuter ferry service from Werribee to the city fully sustainable. Wyndham Harbour also provides new lifestyle opportunities to Melbourne’s west, opening up Port Phillip Bay to the western suburbs in the same way that the eastern suburbs have enjoyed the bay for decades. The expansion of Wyndham Harbour also provides an exciting opportunity to link Melbourne’s west to the city for tourism and employment anchors such as the Werribee Zoo and the new Werribee Employment Precinct.”
