Wyndham City Council

--- Wyndham City Council

LeadWest has two types of members: (1) the councils of Melbourne‚Äôs west; and (2) organisations that operate in Melbourne's west.

Wyndham City Council is one of the founding council members of LeadWest.

Wyndham City has experienced the largest and fastest growth in all Victorian local government areas and is the fourth fastest growing in Australia.

At the 2011 Census, Wyndham City had a population of 161,575. Its estimated residential population is set to exceed 245,000 people by 2021.

Wyndham City is large and diverse. Spanning 542 km2 on a coastal plain on the western fringe of Melbourne, Wyndham City is home to a diversity of sectors: strong industrial and technology districts, two major retail precincts, intensive vegetable growing areas and grazing lands.

The principal areas of population are Werribee and Hoppers Crossing, with substantial growth occurring in Tarneit, Point Cook, Truganina and Wyndham Vale.

Key tourism and open space attractions such as the Werribee Park Mansion, Victoria's Open Range Zoo at Werribee, the State Equestrian Centre, the Point Cook Homestead and the Point Cook RAAF Museum surround the expansive urban area.

Interested in LeadWest membership?

Any organisation with operations or interests that are based in Melbourne's west may apply for membership. There is a process set down in LeadWest's Constitution for approval of memberships by the Board of Directors
