Flemington renewal program

Last updated: 25 July 2017

We are working with the Moonee Valley City Council to renew the Flemington housing estate and surrounding Debneys Park Precinct.

Rundown walk-up buildings on the Flemington estate will be replaced with new homes.

About the project

The Flemington estate has walk up buildings that cost a lot to maintain.

The Holland Court and Victoria Street in Flemington have multi-storey 'walk-ups' – buildings without lifts – making them inaccessible to people with mobility issues, families with small children, and older Victorians.

The renewed estate will have:

  • More social housing
  • A mix of social and private housing
  • New accessible homes that suit older residents, people with disabilities, and families
  • A range of housing sizes
  • New retail and community spaces.

The new homes

The new homes will be:

  • Built to modern standards
  • Accessible for all
  • Sustainable homes that are cheaper to cool and heat
  • Better suited to the ongoing needs of Victorians.

Will I have to move?

Residents living on Holland Court and Victoria Street will be asked to move while the work happens. This shouldn’t start until late 2017.

You can choose to:

  • Move permanently
  • Return if the new housing suits your needs.

We will pay your moving and utility connection costs.

For more information, read the Questions and answers for residents about relocation (.docx).

Project timeline

The project is made up of two stages:

  • Stage one: 22 walk-up buildings replaced with new and accessible housing
  • Stage two: Debneys Park upgrades for more open space, and sports and recreation.

Flemington estate planning proposal consultation

The planning proposal has been referred to the Social Housing Renewal Standing Advisory Committee. This committee gives independent advice on planning proposals to the Minister for Planning.

Any interested person or organisation can make a submission to the committee by 5pm on 28 July 2017.

Drop-in sessions
