Status: Request for Expressions of Interest in Major Development Parcel
The Metropolitan Planning Authority (MPA) seeks expressions of interest to develop the major component of the new East Werribee precinct.
The market offering totals approximately 400ha (gross) in one of Australia’s fastest growing areas and one of Melbourne’s six national employment clusters. This major development parcel includes the planned East Werribee town centre based around a central lake and heritage park setting, surrounding commercial areas, and substantial areas for high quality residential development.
As part of this process, the Government seeks proposals from the property industry to either enter a development partnership or purchase the land outright to develop the first stage of the East Werribee Employment Precinct, which has been planned to provide commercial opportunities to create 58,000 jobs and 7000 new homes.
Mixed use development is planned for the site comprising approximately:
- 142ha for retail / office / apartments and industrial
- 135ha designated for residential development
- 123ha non developable.
More information about the Request for Expressions of Interest is available on the Victorian Government Tenders website
Expressions of Interest submissions should be lodged at the Metropolitan Planning Authority – Level 29, 35 Collins Street, Melbourne, Victoria, 3000. Submissions will be accepted until 3pm on 16 July 2014.
The East Werribee Employment Precinct Structure Plan (PSP) has been approved by the Minister for Planning, the Hon. Matthew Guy MLC. The approved PSP was launched by Premier Denis Napthine and Minister Guy on 7 October 2013 at the University of Melbourne Veterinary School in Werribee.
Premier Napthine and Minister Guy also confirmed funding for a full diamond freeway interchange at Sneydes Road, as well as significant arterial road upgrades.
The East Werribee Employment Precinct Structure Plan (PSP) will guide the development of a mixed use precinct that will create opportunities for 58,300 local jobs and 7100 new homes, key infrastructure, advanced integrated water cycle management, sports facilities, and local parks.
The Metropolitan Planning Authority (formerly the Growth Areas Authority) prepared the East Werribee Employment PSP in consultation with the Wyndham City Council, Government agencies and service authorities.
Land covered by the PSP, which is owned by the State Government, has been used for agriculture and research for 100 years. It will be developed into a commercial precinct, a new town centre, health and learning precinct, enterprise precinct and a business precinct, as well as providing new homes to support this employment.
The precinct will have excellent freeway access and provide a wide range of retail and employment options, while the planned Point Cook South West and Wattle Avenue residential communities outlined in the masterplan will include a variety of housing types and facilities.
