King’s Leigh residents are in the box seat to enjoy a huge new outdoor recreational area adjacent to the community. This 20-hectare site will be developed over the next few years, and Dacland is already working provide King’s Leigh residents with the best possible access.
“King’s Leigh residents will have front door access to a fantastic asset that include new sporting fields,” says Dacland General Manager, Design Jonathon Fetterplace. “Combined with the existing abundance of green open space within King’s Leigh, this major new recreational facility makes it an unsurpassed location in terms of residents’ proximity to outdoor space, recreation and sporting assets,” he says.
Wyndham City Council has earmarked the site as it works to continue meeting the needs of Werribee’s growing population, projected to rise to over 49,000 in 2021.
Over recent months, Dacland has been working with Wyndham City Council and the Metropolitan Planning Authority (MPA) to revise elements of King’s Leigh’s original design to create the best possible integration with the new open space.
“We’re looking at how integrating this new open space influences the existing design, and working with Council and the MPA to get the best value to our future residents and the broader community,” says Jonathon.
“We’re delighted to contribute to Council’s vision of getting the most value out of new open space developments. Our revised plan really opens up King’s Leigh to improve connectivity by providing direct access connections where possible,” he said.
“We’ve created a direct road connection, and several pedestrian links to the new site. Our priority is to give as many King’s Leigh homes sites as possible a direct relationship to the new open space.”
“We look forward to our continued work with Council to help realise its open space vision and provide great value to residents and the wider community in the coming years,” says Jonathon.
