Locals to benefit from $6M retirement village

A recent sod-turning ceremony marked the start of a $6 million building project of 12 independent living units at Glengollan Village in Ferntree Gully.

These will join the other 135 units that have provided affordable housing and luxurious retirement villa units for hundreds of residents over six decades.

Current resident, John Hawkins moved in as a resident in the village after selling his family home to Glengollan Village almost 60 years ago.

The $6 million project will not only provide quality accommodation for the local community, it will create jobs for local businesses and trades. Glengollan, when possible, sources and supports local businesses as preferred providers.

The project is due for completion later this year.
