Imagine Windy Hill

What do you imagine for Windy Hill?

We’re planning for the future of Windy Hill, our iconic sport and recreation reserve in Essendon, and we need your help!

With changes in use (such as the Essendon Football Club moving its training base to the Tullamarine), ageing facilities, growth in the local community and increasing demand for spaces to provide multipurpose opportunities for all, we’ve identified the opportunity to redesign Windy Hill as a community sport and recreation precinct, acknowledging the history and heritage of the site.

To come up with a plan for the future, we are asking:

  • What do you love about Windy Hill?
  • What do you want to do there?
  • How should it look in the future?
  • What needs to be provided?

Your ideas will help us set a draft vision for Windy Hill that reinforces all that is special about it and that continues to position it as an icon for future generations to enjoy.

Make sure you share your vision for Windy Hill below, and don’t forget to vote on your favourite illustrated vision as depicted by local residents!

  • Neighbourhood Advisory Group - Expression of Interest NOW CLOSED

    7 months ago

    Expressions of interest for the Community Reference Group have now closed.

    We have been overwhelmed by the quality of applications and interested people for this opportunity despite the limited spots available. Nominations are currently being reviewed and applicants will be contacted regarding their nomination.

    Note:
    Council is aware that for some people nearby Windy Hill, letters only made it to letter boxes two days before the closure of this group on February 10. We had originally mailed out to local residents an invitation in December. It was then identified this distribution was well short of the desired catchment and so a follow up letter was prepared in late January. Due to delays these did not make it to letterboxes until February 8. Council apologises for these errors. It should be noted we had placed links to the project page through MVCC Facebook in December and again in early February and the Valley View magazine in early February.

    Please be aware that this is one mechanism to be involved and there will be multiple opportunities for the community to have a say on the progress of the project so hit the follow button on the main project page for key updates.
