The delivery of a public primary school and a place of worship were key priorities identified by the Docklands community in the development of the Docklands Community and Place Plan.
On 29 February 2016, the Minister for Education announced the first stage of needs assessment for a school in Docklands had been completed and the second stage would begin. The second stage will involve further consultation with the community and key stakeholders and will look at options to deliver access to primary and secondary schooling across Docklands and surrounding areas.
FAQs and a report of the Stage One assessment can be viewed here.
Places Victoria has secured a site for a school within the Digital Harbour precinct.
Place of worship
Places Victoria carried out a two-stage bid process to facilitate the delivery of a place of worship in Docklands. Places Victoria acts commercially and despite our best efforts and those of the preferred bidder, an agreement could not be reached. As a result the formal bid process was terminated in mid 2015.
Places Victoria is committed to securing the best outcome for the Docklands community and will continue to progress opportunities for projects that contribute to the vibrancy of Docklands.
