New Casey precinct plan put to public

Victoria’s City of Casey Council has invited local residents to have their say on the development of the new Bunjil Place Precinct.

Council is currently examining opportunities to develop the five hectares of underutilised land adjoining Bunjil Place and Fountain Gate Shopping Centre in Narre Warren – known as the Bunjil Place Precinct. 

It says the site could provide “a unique opportunity to build on the strong social and cultural focus created by Bunjil Place, with the potential to support greater diversity of employment, tourism, economic and social activity”.

Residents are being invited to share what they would like to see at the site via an online survey.  

City of Casey Chair of Administrators, Noelene Duff PSM said the Council was committed to creating public spaces where the community can thrive, while attracting investment opportunities and partnerships that deliver positive community outcomes now and into the future.

“The Bunjil Place Precinct provides our community with a potential opportunity to strengthen the area’s arts and tourism culture that has been established by Bunjil Place,” said Ms Duff. 

Following community consultation and the finalisation of the site’s vision, Council will seek the community’s feedback on selling the five hectares of land for development in line with the vision, she said.

It’s envisaged the long-term project will take place over the next 10 or more years.
