The project will involve a staged redevelopment and refurbishment of public housing to deliver a range of choices in the size and design, and overall more suitable options for Housing SA tenants.
Other aged South Australian Housing Trust dwellings will be demolished to create new land allotments on which both new public and private housing will be developed.
Work is due to commence mid-2017. Once completed in late 2020 it is expected that there will be a total of approximately 305 homes in the project area.
These homes will be consist of existing private properties and up to 200 new housing allotments, including 177 new houses for sale (30 of which will be new affordable houses or land for sale). It also includes approximately 24 renovated Housing Trust dwellings for sale plus 45 new and pre-existing dwellings to be upgraded and retained by the Housing Trust.
Final numbers may vary as renewal plans progress and are fine tuned.
We are creating affordable homes
that will offer people greater
accessibility to home
ownership in areas
close to the city.
Renewal SA is committed to engaging with tenants, private property owners/occupiers, the local community and other stakeholders throughout the life of the renewal project.
Housing Trust homes that are prioritised for redevelopment will result in some tenants having to be relocated to other Housing Trust homes.
We are committed to making the relocation process as easy as possible by keeping tenants and other stakeholders fully informed and doing all we can to offer tenants a home that matches their needs.
While our Tenant Relationship and Transition Unit will be in regular contact with tenants to ensure their relocation is a positive experience, they are welcome to call the Tenant Hotline on 1300 918 814 with any questions.
Invitations have been sent to people who live within the project area to attend drop-in information sessions and meet with members of the Morphettville Neighbourhood Renewal Project team to discuss what’s happening and provide input for renewal of the site.
