Update on VicRoads land

Congratulations to Moreland Council, which decided on 13 June to make an offer to the State Government to buy land owned by VicRoads at Leonard St, Fawkner. This land is an integral part of the Merri Creek habitat and parkland corridor but has been declared ‘surplus’ to VicRoads’ needs. If not acquired by Council it could be sold off for residential development. It’s still not a done deal yet, as the State Government may want more than Council offers, and it will take some time for the negotiations to be completed and land to be transferred. See more here.
