Feds fund Gladstone housing

HOUSING will start popping up all over Gladstone with federal government funding announcements made yesterday.

Minister for Housing Tanya Plibersek visited numerous sites of future and existing projects for affordable housing, including the Gladstone Heritage Retirement Village in Sun Valley.

Ms Plibersek announced a further 12-unit (two-bedroom) complex, worth $3.1 million on Oaka Street, to be built under the Social Housing Initiative, plus a 60-unit development that will receive some funds under the National Rental Affordability Scheme.

Four of the units in Oaka Street will be suitable for tenants in wheelchairs or have other mobility needs. The units will have high energy efficiency ratings, incorporating lighting, draught-proof windows and doors and insulation.

Member for Flynn Chris Trevor said a further 35 homes were planned for Emerald, Biloela and Gin Gin.

“We are about to experience unprecedented growth over the next few years and part of my job is to ensure local people who do not work in the construction industry are not left behind with the massive population growth expected,” he said.
