At Tuesday’s meeting I’ll be moving a motion to amend Council’s Community Grants program to prioritise applications that provide services to vulnerable people in extreme weather. You can read more about my proposal in InDaily.
Homelessness represents an ongoing challenge for our city and there is a shortage of long term affordable housing options and accommodation for people in need. With prefabricated (or modular) housing we could build more affordable housing for half the cost and in much less time than traditional housing construction.
If elected I will lobby Council to set targets for prefabricated housing to encourage this kind of development.
