Keeping locals local

Following the successful delivery of Curlew Community Park on the former Laverton Primary School site in Epsom Street, Hobsons Bay City Council is seeking to commence the next steps towards delivering the affordable housing component of the development.

Council is looking to deliver a best-practice affordable housing development to the north and south of Curlew Community Park at 7-45 Epsom Street, Laverton. The development would accommodate up to 80 individuals and families, who have a connection to Hobsons Bay. This development would provide a home for locals who struggle to find an appropriate and affordable place to live in Hobsons Bay through the private market.

To ensure the housing development will suit the site visually and be environmentally sustainable, design guidelines have been drafted for the proposed development. We are now seeking community feedback on the guidelines to ensure that the development meets the needs of the current and future community.

Provide your feedback on the guidelines between Monday 28 February and Monday 28 March 2022. You can read the design guidelines by clicking here or they can be found in the documents section of this page together with information on the development.
