Hon Colin Brooks MP (Minister for Development Victoria)

I thank the Member for Western Metropolitan Region for his question.

Parkville Gardens is a housing development on a 20 hectare site in Parkville, formerly the site of the Athletes’ Village for the 2006 Commonwealth Games.

When complete, Parkville Gardens will include approximately 1,600 dwellings, of which 20% will be dedicated social housing. It will include the retention and refurbishment of heritage buildings and the creation of wetlands and new parklands.

The project has allowed the Victorian Government to put into practice its policies on environmentally sustainable design, social housing, disabled access and community services.

The project is targeted for completion in 2025.
