Part of the overall project includes setting aside some land adjacent to the Community Hub for social housing.

What is Social Housing?

Social housing is housing for those on low to moderate income, right through to crisis accommodation and can be provided by the state government or not-for-profit housing providers.

In Victoria, there are a number of local government led social housing initiatives which have been delivered successfully. There are a variety of ways that social housing can be provided including partnerships (joint ventures), shared equity or rent to buy arrangements.

We have reviewed a number of models for the delivery of social housing and will progress this project in 2020. We will keep you updated as the social housing project progresses.
