Renewing Our Streets and Suburbs

The Renewing Our Streets and Suburbs initiative aims to renew aged South Australian Housing Trust dwellings, which includes a program of redevelopment and refurbishment.

Benefiting communities and industry

Our goal is to encourage housing growth in existing suburbs, close to schools, hospitals and other services to create healthy, affordable and liveable neighbourhoods.

Renewing our streets and suburbs means we'll provide more affordable housing for South Australians.

Better homes for tenants

Renewing Our Streets and Suburbs has a continued focus on sensitively relocating and transferring tenants in order to provide more suitable homes and improve the availability of social housing.

Renewal opportunities

The Renewing Our Streets and Suburbs program is estimated to generate more than 1.2 billion of private and government investment, supporting approximately 1600 jobs each year for the next five years.
