Renewal SA welcomes news that the $10 billion Housing Australia Future Fund (HAFF) is poised to pass through Federal Parliament, opening up a pipeline of planned affordable and social housing projects in South Australia.
Executive Director of Residential Project Delivery and Assets Shane Wingard said Renewal SA has undertaken extensive planning for a range of new housing developments which can progress in partnership with the Community Housing Provider (CHP) sector as soon as federal funding is confirmed and allocated to these projects.
“Part of the ground work we’ve already undertaken is unlocking land for more affordable housing, and we are also well underway forming critical partnerships with Community Housing Providers and a range of builders which will help us deliver these projects,” Mr Wingard said.
Projects that will be put forward for HAFF funding by Renewal SA include:
- Noarlunga Downs (Goldsmith Dr) – 20 affordable rentals and 80 social houses as part of a new 600-home master-planned community
- Franklin Street (Former Bus Station site) – an estimated 35-40 affordable rentals
- Bowden (Second St) – targeting 60 new affordable homes including a minimum 36 affordable rental apartments.
- Bowden (Third St) – minimum 60 new affordable rental apartments.
- Prospect (Churchill Rd) – minimum 72 new affordable rental apartments across two residential buildings.
- Playford Alive (Newton Blvd) – 25 affordable rentals.
“These housing developments are designed to be more than just homes – they will be connected, sustainable communities with excellent amenities where people can build exciting futures,” Mr Wingard said.
