Preston - Stokes/Penola Streets and Oakover Road
There are two sites in Preston that will be redeveloped, both located 10 kilometres from the CBD in the City of Darebin:
- Oakover Road
The Preston project is one of eleven identified to be renewed in Stage One of the Public Housing Renewal Program.
The Stokes/Penola site (previously known as Huttonham Estate) is bound by Stokes Street to the west, Penola Street to the east and Showers Street to the south. The site is currently vacant, and $23 million is committed to build 68 new public homes on part of the site.
The Oakover Road site is located on the corner of Oakover Road and Railway Place West. The buildings on the site were built in the 1940s and are no longer suiting the needs of many residents. At the moment there are 26 dwellings on the Oakover Road site and they will be replaced by at least 30 new public housing homes.
The new homes will be modern and accessible, safe, secure and energy efficient, and built to meet the needs of tenants today and into the future. The redevelopment will also include private housing, which will help fund the project and create more diverse communities.
