Residential Development

––On the southern outskirts of the Moe township, this vacant 16 hectare parcel of land zoned for residential purposes remained vacant due to numerous constraints. In January 2015, VCAT approved subdivision of the land into 102 residential lots, noting that 'the design of this subdivision provides a commendable response to water quality and other environmental conditions'.
