Hundreds of people on the social housing waiting list and hundreds more will have access to brand new homes as the NSW Government continues to deliver on its promise to build more housing through the sale of properties in Millers Point.
To date, the Government has completed construction on 775 new homes with a further 372 under construction. More than 1140 have been funded through the sales program so far.
Minister for Social Housing Pru Goward made the announcement today during a tour of a new seniors complex in Padstow with the Member for East Hills Glenn Brookes.
“This Government committed to building four to five new social housing properties for every Millers Point property sold – this is being achieved,” Ms Goward said.
“We are assisting vulnerable people by building new social housing in locations like Padstow, Revesby and Condell Park and I am immensely proud of what we have achieved so far.”
Mr Brookes said the Millers Point program was helping vulnerable people in his electorate move into new homes, which are suitable for families, the elderly and people with disability.
“We are now able to see and hear the real stories of people who have benefited from these new homes – this beautiful seniors complex is proof the program was needed and is delivering for the most vulnerable,” Mr Brookes said.
