The NSW Land and Housing Corporation (LAHC) is seeking input from local residents after releasing detailed plans for a new housing development in Spring Street, Wagga Wagga

Minister for Water, Property and Housing, Melinda Pavey, said the development forms part of the NSW Government’s investment in new, fit for purpose, social housing across regional NSW.

“We are looking to redevelop this vacant site in Spring Street and transform it into new, modern dwellings that are located near health, education and transport services,” Mrs Pavey said.

Nationals MLC, Wes Fang said, not only will this project deliver additional social housing for the local community, the project will also engage local builders and suppliers, creating around 12 equivalent full time jobs, helping to stimulate the local economy.

The $1.47 million development will include four one-bedroom social housing units, on-site parking and associated landscaping proposed for the site.

LAHC will be responsible for seeking community feedback and assessing the development proposal.

Subject to planning approval, construction of the project should begin in late 2020, with first residents likely to move in around mid-2021.

LAHC has also exhibited detailed plans for a ten-dwelling housing development in South Parade, Wagga Wagga.

This development is part of the NSW Government’s Future Directions for Social Housing – a 10 year plan to drive better outcomes for tenants by providing more and better social housing.
