Next steps

We've appointed Built Pty Ltd to develop and deliver the 178 new homes for Victorians on the Ashburton site.

Work will soon begin with the contractor preparing the site for building activities.

We'll install site hoarding around the boundary of the redevelopment site prior to the main construction works.

The project is expected to be completed by early 2023.
