Upgrade and refurbishment work at the Dunbar Way and Kendall Village estates in North Gosford is now nearing completion.
Pacific Link Housing is managing and funding the $400,000 program to improve tenant facilities for residents ranging from young families to retirees in age.
The NSW Government-approved project will ensure the estates' 100 homes continue to provide community and social housing for many years to come.
Safety and security has been improved on both estates through the addition of new lighting and closed circuit TV in public areas. The upgrade work also includes:
- Repainting the exteriors of all 100 homes
- Installing fences around unfenced properties
- The construction of a new children’s playground
- Installation of new playground equipment
- Tree trimming and landscaping
- A storage upgrade for unwanted household items.
“Dunbar Way and Kendall Village are important community and social housing assets,” said Pacific Link Housing Chairman, David Bacon.
“With waiting times now well beyond 10 years for assisted housing, it’s essential we maintain the properties we have."
‘The Dunbar Way refurbishment is really important, and I’d like to take this opportunity to thank all those who’ve been involved. Including out tenants on site.” he said.
