The NSW Government is continuing its commitment to people in need across the Goulburn electorate with $18.3 million worth of development underway to deliver social housing and jobs to the region.

This month, the NSW Land and Housing Corporation (LAHC) and its partners will commence work on their latest project - a $6.34 million development at the corner of Combermere and Rhoda Streets, Goulburn.

Member for Goulburn Wendy Tuckerman said the project is one of five social housing projects under development in the regional city.

“This development is a perfect example of maximising government land for community benefit – providing new social housing and a boost for local jobs and businesses.” Mrs Tuckerman said.

“The land will be transformed into 14 homes for up to 17 people in need - creating 32 jobs for tradies, apprentices and labourers and suppliers.”

Set to be completed in mid-2023, the project will deliver six one-bedroom units and eight two-bedroom units, located close to schools and transport.

Minister for Planning and Minister for Homes Anthony Roberts said building social housing is an investment in the economy and crucial to the state’s recovery from COVID-19.

“In the past year more than $1 billion in stimulus money was announced by the NSW Government for social and affordable housing. Through projects like these in Goulburn we are delivering people a safe place to call home and supporting more families through jobs and economic stimulus,” Mr Roberts said.
