Local residents have successfully campaigned for Manor Lakes to be recognised as a suburb in its own right. Notice of the registration of Manor Lakes by the Registrar of Geographic Names was published in the Victoria Government Gazette on 17th March. In order for the suburb status to be formalised, the process requires Wyndham City Council to be officially notified by the Office of Geographic Names.
We received great news for all Manor Lakes residents today, City West Water have advised us that recycled water will be supplied to over 3,750 homes in Wyndham Vale and Manor Lakes from tomorrow, Wednesday 15th November.
Come along to a fabulous day of colour, fun and entertainment at Manor Lake’s Australia Day celebrations, Thursday 26th January at Manor Lake. There’ll be dancing, pony rides, an inflatable island and much more. Come dressed in your own Australia Day cultural outfit for the chance to win great prizes.
A total of 13 not-for-profit groups operating in the Wyndham area will share in $13,000 of financial grants through the 2017 Manor Lakes Community Fund.
The annual grants are distributed by Manor Lakes estate project manager the Dennis Family Corporation, with the recipients being determined by an independent judging panel. This year’s successful applicants will each receive a $1000 grant, to be awarded at a presentation function on 11th October.
Another important step in the transitional process of Manor Lakes becoming a suburb in its own right has been reached. The Office of Geographic Names has advised that it wrote to Wyndham City Council on 15th April advising that the suburb name Manor Lakes has been finalised and is now shown on the Victorian State Government Department of Environment, Land, Water & Planning website within the Locality Names and Boundary Maps section as Version 5.6 for Wyndham.
Living in Manor Lakes just gets better and better. We were delighted by the arrival of the new Wyndham Vale train station in June last year, which has resulted in easier commuting to and from Manor Lakes for our growing community.
