There is a lack of adequate senior school facilities that cater to educational levels beyond the P-9 years.
A friend of yours is going to move into your area, what experiences would you share with them, reassuring them to make this move?:
The city of Wyndham is a good place to live. What makes it particularly inviting is that the migrant community from South Asia and South East Asia is well represented politically and therefore is given good representation. The City of Wyndham provides high quality town entres, several train stations, new railway line and investment from several levels of government. There are a wide variety of available cuisines.
The City of Wyndham is strategically situated approximately halfway between Greater Melbourne and Greater Geelong, Victoria's largest and second largest cities respectively which provides access to employment opportunities in both areas. There are some issues with congestion but proper choice of travel time can provide lots of savings in time spent in the car.
A friend of yours is going to move into your area, what experiences would you share with them, discouraging them to make this move?:
If you need to depart from the municipality during peak periods or return in the evening, it can be a real challenge. There is a lack of adequate senior school facilities that cater to educational levels beyond the P-9 years. There is a lack of a rail spur line into Point Cook. There is no public swimming pool within Point Cook. There is no clearly defined strategy to attract new white-collar employment into the City of Wyndham beyond formalising the existing employment cluster with a rebadged name (East Werribee, etc).
If there is anything you or others in your community have done to overcome issues in your area, please describe them.:
To overcome these challenges, we have staggered our departure times exiting the municipality. Changed employer location.
What were the outcomes of these efforts?:
The benefits have been evident and manifest as reduced frustration, availability of parking spaces.
If one great thing was going to happen in your area next year, what would you want it to be?:
A new public select school in Point Cook, a railway spur line into Point Cook, the relocation of about 40,000 new whitecollar employment into Point Cook and surrounds and a new public swimming pool in Point Cook
