Wyndham Harbour Project Melbourne

Thursday 18 July 2013 – Minister for Planning Matthew Guy has given approval for the expansion of one of the most exciting redevelopments in Melbourne’s west by announcing extensions to the Wyndham Harbour project.

Planning Scheme Amendment C156 will allow Wyndham Harbour to grow to a community of almost 1,400 residents. Mr Guy’s approval will also assist in fast tracking a ferry service link to the Docklands and the CBD.

“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,” Mr Guy said.

“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.”

The rezoning of 11 hectares of land will accelerate the development of the 1,000 berth marina, 10 kilometre extensions of gas and water mains and reticulated sewage.

“This approval will assist in creating up to 3,000 jobs during a five-year construction period and up to 440 ongoing jobs associated with marina operations, retail activity and property and site maintenance,” Mr Guy said.

Wyndham Harbour will be a residential, commercial and marina complex and the only safe boat harbour between Williamstown and Geelong.

The new development will provide approximately 200 residential housing lots, 200 apartments and 27 terrace homes that incorporate the latest in environmentally sustainable initiatives.

Other features of the development will include two new public beaches and Marina Square, which will offer a central hub with a range of restaurants and cafes, a convenience store, boat brokers and charter boat hire.

Members for Western Metropolitan region, Bernie Finn and Andrew Elsbury, welcomed the development and said Wyndham Harbour will become a treasured landmark in Melbourne’s west, supported by its proximity to the Werribee Employment Precinct and other popular suburbs in Melbourne’s west.
