Flemington Site Update

On 15/11/20 The Victorian Government announced…

“The Victorian Budget 2020/21 will deliver a historic $5.3 billion Big Housing Build to construct more than 12,000 new homes throughout metro and regional Victoria, as well as supporting around 10,000 jobs, per year over the next four years, to supercharge Victoria’s economic recovery through the pandemic and beyond.”

Whilst the rebuild of the ‘walk ups’ at the Flemington Estates is already underway, the Association understands this new initiative may have implications for the wider redevelopment for social housing on the ‘estate’; especially since the Government has also rescinded its proposal to sell the public land.
