This innovative and award-winning project was delivered without the need for any government funding contribution. This was achieved by leveraging the sale of four obsolete social housing dwellings and the reinvestment of the realised funds to purchase and develop land.
This $3.5 million project achieved an overall housing uplift of eight properties:
• two new three-bedroom Silver Standard group homes for people living with disability
• two new three-bedroom community housing rental properties
• four new three-bedroom dwellings sold to the first home buyers’ market, and achieved the principal objective of creating two new purpose-built disability group homes integrated with social and market housing
