Project Background

42 Harding Street Winchelsea was originally owned by the Church of England.

In 1977 the Church of England transferred the land to the Shire of Winchelsea for a nominal price. The desired use for the site was for community purposes.

After the amalgamation of Councils in 1994 the Surf Coast Shire Council became the land owners of this site. The land has remained vacant since 1977.
