Save Marrickville's work on affordable housing
Save Marrickville has developed a draft policy on retaining affordable housing in our area, and would welcome feedback from our members on our position.
Federal and State governments have the greatest opportunity to provide affordable housing, but Inner West Council can also play a role through the new Affordable Housing Revised Scheme, provided it is properly targeted.
For some time housing in our area has become more expensive. As local residents we are concerned to protect the physical character and charm of our neighbourhood, and it is also important to support the people who live in our community. Our community is made up of people on a range of incomes and various occupations, and that is a key part of the Marrickville community’s character. If all local housing becomes too expensive, Marrickville will lose many of the people who now live here.
Save Marrickville is seeking your comments on the draft. Email [email protected] with any concerns, thoughts and comments about our Draft Affordable Housing position. We would appreciate hearing from you before Monday 14th June.
