The NSW Land and Housing Corporation (LAHC) has announced three recently completed housing redevelopment projects which have delivered new social homes for vulnerable seniors.
LAHC Chief Executive, Mick Cassel, said many seniors had experienced the ups and downs of 2020, but some will now welcome the year ahead and beyond thanks to the shelter and respite provided by 42 modern social homes, delivered by the NSW Government.
“New homes have been built in the Sydney suburbs of Elderslie, Miller and Chester Hill, and the keys in doors provided to access these new homes that will dramatically improve the lives and comfort of at-risk people,” he said.
“More than $13 million has been invested in building these new social homes, supporting an estimated 67 jobs during construction and boosting our economy’s recovery.
“These projects form part of the NSW Government’s $4.4 billion investment in social and affordable housing over four years, with the $812 million investment in last year’s budget the largest experienced in NSW for 20 years.
“When we build these new homes to support people in need, we’re also supporting other families and people who rely on construction activity for jobs and economic security.”
The contemporary, two-storey developments in Burrawong Crescent, Elderslie, Miller Road, Miller, and Biara Street, Chester Hill, are designed to the highest standard, ensuring benefits such as enhanced accessibility and energy efficiency.
