The NSW Government has delivered new, high quality social housing for vulnerable community members in Sydney’s south-west, helping to meet the high demand for priority housing in the area
Minister for Water, Property and Housing, Melinda Pavey, announced the completion of 10 new seniors’ homes at Eve Street, Guildford.
“South Western Sydney is one of the state’s highest demand areas for priority housing and these modern, fit-for-purpose homes will provide new tenants with safe and accessible housing,” Mrs Pavey said.
“New residents will have access to modern, energy and water efficient homes located within close proximity to local shops and transport services.”
The $3.8 million project includes six one-bedroom units and four two-bedroom units, car parking, associated landscaping works and a new footpath.
“This project represents a smart approach to growing our housing portfolio by replacing ageing cottages on large sites with additional homes,” Mrs Pavey said.
“It has also helped create jobs, including through a local family-owned building company, which constructed the housing on behalf of the NSW Government.
“Communities across the state can expect to see more of these types of developments, as the government ramps up its commitment to deliver more suitably designed and located housing.”
In December, the NSW Government completed a two-story senior’s housing development in Sefton, which included 14 high quality homes.
These developments are 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.
