Development Victoria

Redeveloping a public housing site in Ashburton


About the project  

The Victorian Government intends to redevelop the former Markham Avenue housing estate as part of its commitment to renewing and increasing public housing in Victoria.

The 56 units previously located on site were in poor condition, with only 12 habitable, and these were demolished in January 2016.

The government is considering options for the site.

Community and stakeholder engagement 

Community engagement occurred in late 2016, to gain an understanding of the views within the local community. 

The key issues highlighted by the community included the design of the development, height and density, the planning process, traffic and parking, and neighbourhood context.
