• 1. Neighbourhood and Village Pulses

    Delivering a 20-minute city and a city of 20-minute neighbourhoods.

To enable 20-minute neighbourhoods to be developed effectively requires identifying where each neighbourhood is and the activity centre on which it will be centred.

This involves spatial thinking and the identification of neighbourhoods and the activity centres that will provide the foundations from which the community can grow and develop in terms of public and private infrastructure, thus providing greater capacity to deliver the Wyndham 2040 Vision.

It is also important to recognize that not all neighbourhoods or their activity centres are the same. Some are identified to support larger catchments of multiple neighbourhoods. The new approach proposed identifies these as critical locations for the future development of Wyndham. They are the key existing and proposed activity centres in Wyndham that will be central to the creation of Wyndham as a 20-minute city.

Just as there are several pulse points in our bodies that monitor our health and well-being, there are pulse points throughout Wyndham that are existing and future hubs of activity serving the surrounding residential neighbourhoods.

Our Draft Wyndham Plan includes seven Neighbourhood Pulses and two Village Pulses:

  • Tarneit
  • Riverdale
  • Manor Lakes
  • Mambourin
  • Williams Landing
  • Point Cook
  • Point Cook South*
  • Little River (Village Pulse)
  • Werribee South (Village Pulse)

*Unlike other Neighbourhood Pulses, Point Cook South is identified as a smaller Neighbourhood Pulse. It has not yet been planned and is subject to a Precinct Structure Plan planning process that has not yet commenced. The size and scale of this Neighbourhood Pulse will be determined through the future process with community input.

Good idea: Village pulse. Please look at increasing police presens in the suburbs to increase safety and reduce robery. Need for schools.

I thought you forgot to include Truganina. We are also paying council rates. Not happy with your decision. Plans are not very good as well.

Unsure where Werribee/ hoppers crossing fits in? This description is too vague about these pulse centres and what actually happens there

Truganina should also be included either together with Tarneit or separate entry into Neighbourhood Pulse

There is no way that you can cater to everyone's different tastes inside a 20 minute drive, because we do not have the required population.

Would like to see newly planted trees in Tarneit be maintained, better cared for and protected, as the area is prone to strong winds.

Hope to have better infrastructure as far as Roadworks are concerned and greater focus on beautification in Tarneit.

Will you be developing Williams landing shopping centre? Presently is rubbish. And I assume you don't have to stay within these zones?
