Big Housing Build program

The Victorian Government has announced the $21.6 million upgrade of the Ormond Road public housing precinct in Geelong.

With the Ormond Road upgrade, 27 new social housing homes are expected to be built which will provide more options for people at risk of homelessness. These include women and children escaping family violence as well Aboriginal Victorians.

The new project is planned to provide a much-needed boost for the Geelong area with 194 jobs and 27 affordable homes.

The new homes that will be built at this site are much-needed replacements for 18 existing aging social housing units. These buildings have been estimated to deliver significant growth in both affordable and private rental markets, offering relief across many regions of Victoria.

The consultation process has begun to provide the residents of this city with an updated Masterplan. Construction on it is expected to be complete by 2024.

The Big Housing Build has been a huge success, with more than 1100 homes under construction across the state. This investment of $1 billion and 2500 jobs created is just some examples of how well planned this program really was.
