You can view the policy HERE
One of the stated outcomes of the policy is to increase the stock of Social Housing.
When the Minister for Housing Brad Hazzard was interviewed about the new policy he cited the Lend Lease redevelopment of a London Council Estate now known as Elephant Park as an international example of the model the NSW Government would be adopting.
This raises concerns as outlined in the Guardian article that can be viewed HERE
The PSA is currently preparing a position paper on the Government’s Social Housing Policy.
This paper will focus on how the policy might impact specific groups of PSA members.
If you would like the PSA to highlight concerns you may have then please provide your feedback to firstname.lastname@example.org by Monday 8th February.
