Quandong Precinct Structure Plan

Quandong Precinct Structure Plan

The Quandong Precinct Structure Plan (the PSP) will be prepared by Wyndham City Council in consultation with the VPA.

The Quandong precinct will be a unique residential precinct distinguished by its rich biodiversity and cultural heritage. The large grassland conservation reserve and waterway corridor will preserve a sense of open landscape, whilst canopy trees in residential areas will provide greenery and shade in summer. As an environmental and recreation spine, the waterway corridor will link residents to the conservation reserve and passive and active open space, both within the precinct and beyond.

The precinct will support the housing needs of the Wyndham community by providing a variety of housing options.

Key Idea 1 – Biodiversity and cultural heritage

The Aboriginal cultural heritage of the site will be celebrated through an interpretive trail along the waterway. The area’s more recent farming heritage will also be preserved through the retention of dry stone walls along Ballan Road. The precinct’s rich grassland biodiversity will be protected and enhanced through the creation of the conservation reserve on the south-east portion of the precinct.

Background Information

The Victorian Planning Authority (VPA) is an independent statutory authority that reports to the Victorian Minister for Planning and acts as the state’s strategic planner.

The VPA’s main task is to make sure Melbourne and Victoria’s regions remain great places to live. This requires vision and long-term planning, to ensure Victorians have equitable access to employment, public transport, attractive public space and affordable housing for our growing population.

Project Information

The new suburb will be located 9km from Werribee, which is identified in Plan Melbourne 2017 – 2050 as a national employment and innovation cluster (NEIC).
