Public housing in Gladstone will stay public, minister says
HOUSING Minister Bruce Flegg has assured residents that public housing in Gladstone will not be put up for tenure.
The minister met with Gladstone Regional Council and Roseberry Community Service members on Wednesday to discuss options to resolve the public housing shortage in the area.
In the meeting Dr Flegg discussed the need for more housing and more affordable housing across the region.
"All we want to do is provide good housing, more of it and make sure the people in public housing are looked after and supported. That is our aim," Dr Flegg said.
"There is no suggestion of privatising or contracting out the government's responsibilities in relation to public housing."
