Thanks to everyone who provided feedback. An engagement report will be available soon.

Revitalising the historic Doherty's House

Built in the 1870s, Doherty's House was devastated by fire in 1969 destroying the building’s wooden rafters, windows and outbuildings. To preserve the important history of the building, works were completed on the site in 2022 with the help of architects and conservation consultants.

Today the ruins are an important example of the area’s European heritage and are protected by Council’s heritage overlay.

To help revitalise the building, we've created concept designs to create Doherty's House Cafe, a new meeting place for residents while also incorporating Wyndham's history.

How to get involved

We want to know what you think of our plans to turn this building into a new Cafe for residents to gather together in Tarneit.

We're also keen to hear from those who are interested in leasing the finalised space and opening a cafe at Doherty's House via our EOI form below.

Provide your feedback below before 11:59PM Monday 18 September
