Low-cost housing in new residential developments across Sydney and regional NSW will be offered direct to first homebuyers and key workers under a new industry-driven initiative supported by the NSW Government.
NSW Minister for Planning and Housing, the Hon. Anthony Roberts MP, launched the newly formed, not-for-profit Housing Supply Association (HSA) at a major industry event in Sydney today.
The launch comes as new revelations show some emergency services personnel are flying in weekly to Sydney from interstate or travelling large distances to maintain their jobs because they can’t afford to live there.
This is one of the important issues we are trying to tackle through our MoveUp2 Heroes campaign to raise $12.5 million and house 50 essential service personnel. Our essential service personnel deserve a helping hand in this area as they are a key to the wellbeing of our communities. We are proud that our initiative will enable these key workers to live closer to the community in which they serve. For further information, please visit www.moveup2.com.au
