Historical information
Melbourne Legacy had decided to sell two of its properties 22 Selwood St, Hawthorn East and 9 The Avenue, Windsor. This decision was taken due to rising maintenance costs and that the money raised from the sale of the properties could be used to benefit all 24000 widows under their care.
No time frame had been set and all residents of these two properties would be consulted by Legacy personnel with a family member present.
Significance
This shows the commitment of Melbourne Legacy to ensure that residents individual circumstances, accomodation, needs preferences and location were considered in the move, and cause as little disruption to the residents as possible.
