Greenfield site at Harkness - consortium announcement

We are pleased to announce that a consortium has been chosen to work with us to develop a master plan for the greenfield site at Harkness.

The team of Aurecon, Architectus, McGregor Coxall and Greenshoot Consulting has been chosen as the successful consortium to work with us to develop a master plan for the greenfield site at Harkness.

Our 128-hectare greenfield site at Harkness represents the largest cemetery development project in Victoria for 100 years, and it will serve Victoria’s communities for more than 100 years to come.

The consortium will deliver our bold aspirations to undertake a broad, social values-based approach to the development of a master plan through a thorough engagement strategy that ensures the needs and aspirations of the site’s Traditional Owners, communities and stakeholders are listened to, understood, and reflected.

The master plan will consider multi-use purposes for the site and is treating the site as a valued community open space with a multitude of potential uses (in addition to a public cemetery), as well as transition over time to fulfil its potential to meet the burial and cremation needs of Victorians for the next 100 years.
