YourPlace Housing is pleased to announce that the first three new properties, part of a larger development program in Elizabeth North, were completed on November 9, which was ahead of schedule.
Built by Constructwell, the houses were officially opened by the Honourable Nat Cook, Minister for Human Services, in a small ceremony on November 23. The Minister welcomed our new tenants to their new home and neighbourhood, in what was a very proud moment for everyone at YourPlace.
To increase quality housing outcomes for people living with disability, these three properties were built to the NDIS’ SDA Improved Liveability Design Standard and Liveable Housing Australia “Silver” level, giving them a very high standard.
YourPlace’s project architects, KHAB led a number of workshops with tenants, families, and support providers seeking feedback on the final design and layout of the properties.
Each property has a six-star energy efficiency rating, two bedrooms, bathroom, separate laundry, guest toilet and an open-plan kitchen, dining and living room areas. They are pet friendly with a secure, small courtyard garden.
YourPlace worked in co-operation with our tenants chosen support provider in two of the new properties. It is very important for YourPlace Housing to continue these relationships with support providers and tenants to find the right housing within an environment that meets their individual needs.
The third property is now home to a long-time YourPlace Housing tenant who lived in the house that was originally on the site. She graciously transferred to another YourPlace Housing property and had expressed an interest in returning to the area as her life and support network was embedded in Elizabeth North and surrounds.
Keep an eye out in future newsletters as we have a number of other developments due to be finished in the first half of 2024. If you would like to know more, please contact your Tenancy Officer on 8351 8466.
