The new homes at Holland Court, Flemington will be delivered as an extension of the existing Ground Lease Model project at Prahran, Brighton and Flemington where Homes Victoria leases the land to project partner Building Communities, to finance, design, build, manage and maintain the new housing over a 40-year term. This means that all the land remains in public ownership. There will be no sale of public land.
The site at Holland Court is located just 5km from Melbourne’s CBD in the inner suburb of Flemington in the City of Moonee Valley. The 1.9ha site has land capacity to provide more homes for more Victorians, and is ideally positioned close to public transport, jobs, and community services.

The new homes at Holland Court will include a mix of 1-, 2-, 3-bedroom homes to better meet housing demand in Victoria.
New homes at Holland Court will include specialist disability accommodation.
New social housing at the site will be more comfortable and less expensive to heat and cool with a 5-star Green Star rating, and 7-star NatHERS average rating.
A new 5,000sqm public park will be developed at the heart of the site, providing a quality green space for the community to meet, enjoy nature and play.
There will be a new cafe and mixed-use spaces for residents and visitors to enjoy.
The future Holland Court site will better integrate with surrounding neighbourhood, providing connections to Debney's Park, the future Flemington Hub and a local pocket park.
We asked the community to provide feedback on plans for the Holland Court, Flemington housing site between 25 September and 23 October.
Community engagement on this project was carried out in accordance with Clause 52.20 of the Moonee Valley Planning Scheme. Clause 52.20 is a streamlined planning process that facilitates development of new housing through the Victorian Government’s Big Housing Build initiative.
This process removes the standard planning notice and appeals processes. The planning application will be decided by the Minister for Planning. We thanks everyone that participated in the consultation process.
Feedback collected during consultations is currently being analysed. A report on the outcomes of community engagement will be made available by early 2024.
