Regional community housing group, Pacific Link Housing, has added 36 units to help address the need for additional social housing on the Central Coast.
Speaking at a handover ceremony at which Pacific Link was given the future management of the units by the NSW Land and Housing Corporation, Pacific Link Chairman, Mr David Bacon, said:
“The great majority of those on waiting lists for housing on the Central Coast – as well as many of those now in housing – have a stated preference for unit living in line with commercial housing trends.
“With 36 additional units now available Pacific Link will be able to provide good quality, secure, affordable housing for people who qualify for assisted housing.
“Empty nesters in larger social housing homes will now be able to downsize into a unit complex that provides opportunities to build new friendships and participate more widely in the local community.
“This will help to free up larger homes for families in need,” he said.
Pacific Link Housing was awarded a long term management contract for the refurbished units in January 2017 following a competitive tender process.
The organisation already manages more than 1000 properties in the Central Coast and Hunter regions and was last year jointly named as New South Wales Housing Provider of the Year.
