Overview

The Victorian Government is building a new youth justice centre to the west of Werribee, in the vicinity of Cherry Creek.

Providing a new youth justice facility is an essential part of the Government’s commitment to improving community safety and modernising Victoria’s youth justice system.

The $419 million project will provide more than 300 jobs on site and play a key role in the rehabilitation of young people and children who are offending and improve community safety.

Construction of the new youth justice centre is currently underway.

A Community Advisory Group (CAG) including local residents, stakeholders and councillors from the City of Wyndham is helping to guide the development of the new youth justice centre and keep the local community informed as the project progresses.
