Waterloo Estate will be developed

Land and Housing Corporation (LAHC) has started the recruitment process for a consortium to redevelop Waterloo Estate starting with Waterloo South. The consortium will include a developer to handle the redevelopment and a Community Housing Provider (CHP) to run the social housing, replacing the existing role of DCJ Housing.

The CHP will be expected to provide wrap-around human services for tenants. CHP tenants need to obtain Commonwealth Rent Assistance and pay this as increased rent to the CHP.

LAHC has advised tenants in a July newsletter that contamination test drilling will start this month and work has commenced on planning for human service supports and for relocations, which will not begin until 2024.

In a community win, Pitt Street will not be opened up to McEvoy Street. It is not yet clear if LAHC has got the changes it requested in its submission.
