The City of Casey is inviting residents and ratepayers to have their say on the development of the Bunjil Place Precinct to help shape the site’s vision.
To increase investment opportunities and meet the changing needs of Casey’s community, Council is 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.
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 invited to share what they would like to see at the site via an online survey to help shape its vision and ensure its future development meets the needs and desires of the community.
City of Casey Chair of Administrators Noelene Duff PSM, encourages all residents to share their thoughts and be a part of the site’s development journey.
“The City of Casey is 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,” said Ms Duff.
“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.”
Residents can share their feedback via Council’s community consultation website Casey Conversations by Friday 24 February 2023.
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.
The long-term project will take place over the next ten or more years.
