New social homes have been completed to provide better-support for seniors living in Western Sydney, with the NSW Government’s $9.94 million investment also delivering a timely boost for jobs and the economy.
Minister for Water, Property and Housing, Melinda Pavey, welcomed the handing over of new keys for tenants moving into the 31 newly built homes located in Auburn and South Wentworthville.
“These new homes are typical of the high-quality designed and delivered by the NSW Land and Housing Corporation, benefitting communities throughout the State to make them safer and stronger; especially in our regions,” Mrs Pavey said.
“Older, under-occupied, outdated properties that were expensive to maintain, have now been replaced by four-times as many new homes.
“These 31 new homes will do a much better job meeting the needs of today’s and tomorrow’s tenants as well as generating lower maintenance costs.
“These two housing renewal projects also created 50 jobs during construction, which has given timely support for other people and families, bolstering our State’s economic recovery from COVID-19.”
