$150 million to fast-track renewal projects
The NSW Government recently announced $150 million committed from its Fast-Track Housing Construction Package over the next three years for NSW Land and Housing Corporation (LAHC) to accelerate the renewal projects at the Airds-Bradbury and Claymore housing estates, delivering more than 500 new social homes and 1,000 new land lots for sale to build new private homes.
Half of this money (i.e. $75 million) will be allocated to the Airds Bradbury project, to allow LAHC to expand the renewal program by opening up a ‘second development front’ in parallel with the stages currently under redevelopment.
Airds Bradbury Masterplan
Fast-tracking the development at Airds Bradbury will see the project completed in around 5 years’ time, or around three years earlier than originally anticipated. This means that relocation timeframes will need to change for some social housing tenants. A letter setting out details of the new program was letterboxed to all households on 18 November 2020.
The Department of Communities and Justice (DCJ) continues to provide assistance to social housing residents who are required to relocate. A specialist team is available to assist those households who are moving as a result of the fast-tracked program.
$21 million in community facilities and infrastructure
The project will see delivery of the new Kevin Wheatley VC Memorial Playing Fields, a landscaped pond area, new community facilities, renewed local parks for residents as well as a new town centre located in the heart of Airds.
Seniors housing is also a priority with at least 52 units to be built close to future parks, community facilities and public transport.
The remaining new social homes will be detached homes to help meet the demand for contemporary housing in the Campbelltown region.
Support for residents
LAHC has been supporting residents with a wide range of programs and community initiatives provided at Airds Bradbury Central.
Following restrictions brought about by COVID-19, Airds Bradbury Central has recently reopened for user groups and service providers in line with health and safety requirements. Residents can make contact with the Renewal Team by emailing: CampbelltownRenewalProjects@facs.nsw.gov.au
The sale of new residential lots is being managed by Landcom, on behalf of New Communities. New land sales are regularly released by Landcom, under the Newbrook project branding.
