Heidelberg West Social Housing Renewal Project

Tue 1 August, 2017


This Planning Scheme Amendment will be considered by the State Government's Social Housing Renewal Standing Advisory Committee, not Banyule Council. The Committee was established by the State Government to provide advice on the suitability of planning proposals to facilitate the renewal and redevelopment of existing public housing estates to increase the supply of social housing in Victoria. 

Public exhibition of the planning Scheme amendment (Amendment C118) will commence on Wednesday 2 August 2017. The local community and Council will be able to make submissions to the Committee before they make their recommendation to the Minister for Planning, who will decide on the proposal.
