About the proposed sale of land

Our community told us they want to see more social and affordable housing options in Moreland so we are taking steps in this direction and seeking your feedback.

In June this year Council approved the commencement of a process to consider the sale of land at 2-12 Wilkinson Street Brunswick to Moreland Affordable Housing Ltd (MAH). MAH is a charitable not for profit company that was set up by Council in 2018. MAH has the express purpose to provide affordable housing options in Moreland.

The land that is proposed for sale is the western portion of the car park at 2-12 Wilkinson Street, Brunswick. Council will not be paid for the land, rather it will have a binding agreement on its future use to benefit the community. The agreement will ensure that 85% of the proposed 34 apartments developed on the site must be affordable housing; at least half of these will be provided as social housing. The agreement means that the apartments must remain as affordable and social housing into the future. In order for the sale to be finalised, MAH will need to have obtained a planning permit and demonstrate the development is financed.
