New homes for vulnerable Dubbo locals

The NSW Government is asking members of the Dubbo community to share their views on plans to build 16 high-quality social housing homes for up to 24 vulnerable residents in Dubbo.

Member for the Dubbo electorate Dugald Saunders said the NSW Land and Housing Corporation (LAHC) is proposing to build eight new one-bedroom and eight new two-bedroom homes at Myall Street, Dubbo.

“If approved, we will replace four outdated properties with two high-quality, double-story residential buildings to provide much-needed social and economic benefits for the local community,” Mr Saunders said.

Minister for Water, Property and Housing Melinda Pavey said four of the 16 new homes will accommodate wheelchair users.

“This location is ideal, being close to Myall St shops and within 200 metres of a bus stop with regular services to the Dubbo town centre,” Mrs Pavey said.

“Dubbo’s new homes are yet another example of the NSW Government ramping-up its delivery of well-designed and modern social housing for those in our community who need it most.”

If approved, construction is expected to start in early 2022 and end in mid-2023.
