METRONET Social and Affordable Housing and Jobs Package

METRONET Social Affordable Housing Jobs Package banner

The Department of Communities is aligning its investment in social and affordable housing with METRONET to help build liveable and connected communities.

Through partnerships with the private, public and not-for-profit sectors, Communities is delivering its $394 million METRONET Social and Affordable Housing and Jobs Package. The Package addresses the State’s need for additional social and affordable housing in locations aligned with Stage 1 of the METRONET program, and supports infill density targets. It is also assisting Communities to:

  • use housing to achieve better outcomes for individuals and families in need;
  • deliver inclusive and connected communities where people of all incomes and backgrounds have a place to call home and belong;
  • create a housing system that is more responsive to current and future needs; and
  • address the State’s aging social housing stock, changing client demographics and dwellings that are no longer suitable for client needs.

Through the Package, Communities aims to develop high-density mixed-tenure projects; create unique compact urban communities on strategic sites close to METRONET stations; and develop and redevelop smaller scale sites within one kilometre of new METRONET or existing train stations.


Projects

Several projects within the Package are underway, including but not limited to:
