|Construction in progress
Landa Parade, Waratah West
Proposed new dwellings:
Around 11 residents
The 10 social housing units on Landa Parade have been designed to be safe, comfortable and easy to access for older people, people with disability and those with a pram, meeting Liveable Housing Australia’s silver standard for accessibility.
The units are near public transport, local shops and community services, including the Calvary Mater Newcastle public hospital. A range of parks and reserves are also close by.
Each unit includes solar panels and low-flow taps, and the grounds contain drought-resistant native plants.
The project will support around 17 jobs during construction.
When completed, it will deliver 10 social housing units for the 2 it replaces.
The project is being funded under the NSW Government’s $400 million Fast-Track Construction Package.
