With expansive, sun-drenched lots, beautifully curved roads and retained mature trees, Sherwood Heights is set to continue the premium tradition of the existing Sherwood community so well known and loved by Sunbury residents.
Over half of the community will be dedicated to parkland preserved for conservation and recreation, most of which has been inaccessible to the public for over a century. Currently a privately owned farm, the establishment of the Sherwood Heights community will provide public access to over 230 hectares of beautiful parkland encompassing Jacksons Creek, an area over seven times the size of the current Emu Bottom Wetlands.
This parkland will potentially connect to a larger 1,200 hectare regional parkland surrounding both Jacksons Creek and Emu Creek, providing a new opportunity to learn about Sunbury’s unique cultural heritage.

Planning Panels Victoria are expected to finalise the Lancefield Road Precinct Structure Plan in 2018, and we hope to commence sales of the first stages of Sherwood Heights shortly after.

Sunbury residents will be able to enjoy over 230 hectares of beautiful sprawling parkland for the first time in more than a century through the development of the Sherwood Heights community on behalf of the Salesian Society (VIC) Inc.
The land in question is currently being used for private farming and education, which means the public has not had access to a vast expanse of picturesque landscape running along Jackson’s Creek since the 1880’s.
Through the development, Villawood is hoping to deliver significantly to the Sunbury community by setting aside a large portion of Jackson’s Creek for public parkland, which in turn will drive visitation and deliver economic benefits.
The ultimate vision is to develop a world-class space for conservation and recreation that would be over seven times larger than the current Emu Bottom Wetlands, this would significantly improve on environmental outcomes in and around Jacksons Creek and provide an opportunity for recolonisation by the growling grass frog and platypus, which have a colony upstream of the proposed site.
