We need to solve the housing crisis
With the Shoalhaven experiencing a homelessness and housing affordability crisis, we are calling on the NSW Government to allow vacant land in the Shoalhaven to be used for innovative affordable housing initiatives.
The COVID-19 pandemic has hit vulnerable local people in the Shoalhaven hard – particularly those in insecure, low-paid jobs who may already be facing housing stress or be at risk of homelessness.
These people need a safe and affordable place to call home while they get back on their feet. Innovative projects like a Tiny Homes Village can provide the low-cost and safe housing vulnerable members of our community need.
All we need is for the Government to allow vacant land in the Shoalhaven to be used for these sorts of affordable and pioneering projects.
Will you sign our petition and urge the Government to allow vacant land in the Shoalhaven be used for innovative projects to provide housing for those in need in our community?
The Shoalhaven is experiencing a homelessness and housing affordability crisis. COVID-19 lockdowns have hit those with insecure, low paid work the hardest. At the same time, many people have taken advantage of work from home arrangements to move away from Sydney and other regional centres, causing house and rental prices to skyrocket across regions like ours.
Too many vulnerable local people simply can’t afford to put a roof over their heads.
We urge you to allow vacant government land in the Shoalhaven to be used for innovative and urgently needed affordable housing initiatives like a Tiny Homes village.
Yours for a fairer, more inclusive Shoalhaven,
