Information and Community Feedback: What does good housing policy look like?
Housing is an issue of serious concern within the Wentworth community from housing affordability, the availability of affordable and social housing, supporting essential workers to be able to live close to where they work and the interaction with State and Local Government regarding planning and development.
Please join us at the first of two dedicated forums to hear from the Grattan Institute and Shelter Australia about the current status of housing in Wentworth and Australia. This will be followed by interactive sessions facilitating your feedback about housing concerns held by Wentworth residents as well as what our goals are as a community for the future of housing policy both in Wentworth and Australia.
