Fast-Track Homes Boosts Albury Economy


Work is now complete on two new, three-bedroom social homes built in North Albury as part of the NSW Government’s strategy to fast-track the delivery of social housing by partnering with well-known builders and complying with existing development controls.

Member for Albury, Justin Clancy said the Kestrel Street properties fit seamlessly into the existing streetscape, using similar designs for social homes as those used by private builders.

“Up to six locals will soon receive keys to their modern and fit-for-purpose properties here in Albury, giving them the chance to enjoy Christmas in their new homes,” Mr Clancy said.

“This fast-track delivery program is allowing builders to get shovels in the ground faster and provide homes sooner.

“Importantly, it’s also providing much-needed jobs, putting money in the pockets of builders, trades people and other workers who spend in the Albury region.

The Kestrel Street development was approved under the NSW Government’s Low Rise Housing Diversity Code which reduces delivery time by up to six months. The NSW Government’s Land and Housing Corporation (LAHC) is developing 140 social housing dwellings on 57 sites across NSW under the Code.

Minister for Water, Property and Housing, Melinda Pavey said the Albury social housing development is the latest project that was funded from the sale of ageing apartments in inner Sydney.
