Place of worship mooted

28 Aug 2012

Docklands could have its own place of worship by 2015.

Places Victoria has earmarked the corner of Footscray Rd and Little Docklands Drive as the site for the project.

A place of worship was one of 30 projects included in the Docklands Community and Place Plan released in July this year.

A Docklands place of worship was also promised in the Victorian Liberal Nationals Coalition Plan for Planning in 2010.

This, along with a football oval and sporting facilities such as a basketball or netball court, is yet to be delivered.

The planned site could become a mixed-use development. Places Victoria will consider developments which include commercial elements such as a child-care centre, offices or retail space if necessary to make the project possible.

Places Victoria is also seeking submissions which demonstrate a community benefit. This may include co-sharing the premises with other denominations or providing education and training facilities.

Places Victoria will soon seek expressions of interest from groups interested in developing a place of worship in Docklands

It is expected that the Docklands place of worship will be built or under construction by 2015.
