Previous posts

A recent $4 million social housing development initiative in Epping, situated in Melbourne’s northern suburbs, aims to offer a secure and affordable housing solution for up to 23 individuals on the Victorian Housing Register.

This project is a partnership between VincentCare Community Housing and Homes Victoria, underlining a significant investment in the state’s social and affordable housing sector. VincentCare, an arm of the St Vincent de Paul Society Victoria, has a long-standing tradition of aiding Victorians, marking its 170th year of service.

Strategically placed within the Aurora Housing development by Development Victoria, the project ensures future residents have easy access to essential amenities such as shopping centres, educational facilities, parks, and public transport options, enhancing their community living experience.

“Every day around Victoria, we are building light-filled, accessible, secure, and energy-efficient homes for singles, couples, and families as part of the single biggest investment in social and affordable housing by any state or territory government,” Minister for Housing Harriet Shing said.

Minister Shing further underscored the importance of the development, stating that the completion of these new homes will facilitate greater connectivity for individuals on the Victorian Housing Register with essential services such as schools, public transportation, healthcare, and other services in this expanding area of the city.

“We’re working every day to push more homes through the planning process and get shovels into the ground right across the state,” Minister for Development Victoria Colin Brooks said while underscoring the government’s active role in expediting the availability of new homes throughout Victoria.

For her part, the Member for the Northern Metropolitan Region, Sheena Watt, pointed out the importance of such projects in regional growth.

“Building new social housing is key to supporting our growing suburbs in the Northern Metropolitan region,” Watt said acknowledging the critical role of social housing in accommodating the expanding needs of the community, highlighting the government’s commitment to fostering sustainable development and enhancing living standards across Victoria.

The new housing development is part of a comprehensive strategy to address housing needs across the state, with the plan to create over 12,000 new homes. This includes a significant investment to develop additional social and affordable housing in rural and regional Victoria, coupled with the introduction of 4,000 new, energy-efficient social housing units, signifying a holistic approach to improving housing accessibility and sustainability for Victorians.
