South Australian social housing project delivers more homes and jobs

12 Feb 14

A new social housing development is set to begin in Adelaide's northern suburbs, in order to help provide housing for those South Australian's who need it the most. This could be great news for the region in general, in order to help increase the quality of life for those residents living in the area. 

Minister for Social Housing Tony Piccolo attended an event yesterday (February 11) that marked the beginning of construction for Junction Housing's 'Vibrant North' project. This will provide 36 new homes across a number of suburbs, which will aid people who are seeking accommodation in the capital city's north suburbs.

"We are committed to growing the level of social and affordable housing in South Australia," said Mr Piccolo in a February 11 statement. 

"This project has been made possible through the South Australian Government's $20 million stimulus package for community housing, which aims to stimulate jobs within the construction sector and deliver more than 120 new homes across the state." 

This particular development has been supported by more than $5 million being put towards it by the state government, a considerable investment in helping to house vulnerable South Australians. 

The properties will be built in Andrews Farm, Smithfield Plains, Munno Para and Davoren Park. Those eligible for the homes will be those who are most in need - individuals who are subjected to domestic violence, living with disabilities, or are at risk of homelessness. 

The project should be completed by the end of August, which is when people are expected to be able to move into the properties.
