The Manningham Uniting Church building is known locally as “The Grove” located at 147 Woodhouse Grove Box Hill North. The property is rectangle in shape and is entered to the North side of Woodhouse Grove. The site occupies 2978 Sqm, which is the size of between four and five house blocks found in the Box Hill North residential area.
Planning approval has now been granted by Whitehorse City Council to build eight double story townhouses (4 x 3 bedroom & 4 x 4 bedroom), including some with accessible features.
The Wesleyan Chapel which stands on the eastern side of the block will be preserved. MUC has requested an amenity block be added to the Chapel. It is envisaged that this Chapel will be a lovely community space once the development is completed.
