As of February 2010, a great portion of the South East of Melbourne and surrounding areas have now had aWMO placed upon these areas, areas like Frankston, Mornington, Carrum Downs and Mornington are just

amongst some of the areas effected.

How this effects your project is that now you are required to apply for a planning permit for new dwellings, this will now set back your project lead-time by at least 4-6 months and will effect your overall budget back by  approximately 1-5% .

It is highly recommended that in your due diligence before buying a property that you enquiry if the WMO effects your property, you can easily do this via your local council.
