The document will guide how Wyndham council acknowledges the challenges in a growing community, barrieres individuals may ace in accessing services and the need to work with local and other providers.

The draft was developed following a three month community engagement process which included feedback from 121 survey respondents and 500 place-based community sessions.

As we celebrate the 20th year of Manor Lakes, we recently caught up with Dennis Family Corporation Founder, Bert Dennis and second generation Dennis family member, Grant Dennis to discuss the history and vision of Manor Lakes.

"Our original vision for Manor Lakes was to make waterways the major natural attraction. It’s been a fantastic first 20 years for Manor Lakes, but we couldn’t have done it without the local community. Thank you to everyone who has contributed to such an incredible journey together so far." Bert Dennis
