The Guardian: These Melburnians dreamed of a ‘communal approach’ to housing. The local council had other ideas


"This was no half baked idea".

A nice piece in The Guardian covering VCAT's decision to overturn Nillumbik Council's refusal for our collective in Eltham.

The piece reports on our travails through the Victorian town planning system and ultimate victory at VCAT over what has to be one of the most NIMBY councils in the state.

As the sub heading points out,

Victoria’s planning tribunal said the Eltham development ‘should have been supported’ as an ‘innovative approach’ to the housing crisis.

A bitter/sweet victory for a group of great people bravely trying to take control of their housing futures.
