Wyndham has the highest population growth in Victoria, according to new statistics from the Australian Bureau of Statistics
Wyndham City Mayor, Cr Josh Gilligan, expressed concern that the City’s infrastructure was not growing as fast as its population growth figures.
“Wyndham’s population has grown by a whopping 5.9 per cent in 2018-19—that’s 15,120 more people living in our city than the previous year,” Cr Gilligan said.
“We have the second highest population growth in Australia, just behind Brisbane, so we need the relevant funding for the many infrastructure projects we have planned to keep our City liveable.”
“To meet the needs of this growing community, we urgently need more schools, major infrastructure projects, and improved transport options.”

“The impact of the COVID-19 may be wide ranging and we will need to look at new solutions to deal with the infrastructure shortfall.”
“We would welcome the delivery of critical community and transport infrastructure in the 2020 State Budget as part of a package of initiatives aimed at stimulating the economy and jobs.”
“Council continues to advocate for increased and improved transport options, including increasing rail capacity, improved carparking at train stations and upgrades to major roads and intersections.”
“We are also aware of the shortage of schools and increasing demand on our existing schools.”
“Council is calling on the State Government to fund the building of schools across our growth front including in Tarneit and Point Cook.”
