Tim Bull asks how many homes, when and where?
As the State Government prepares to construct 12,000 new homes in Victoria, with 25% in regional areas, Member for Gippsland East Tim Bull wants an assurance for his region.
Mr Bull has written to the Housing Minister seeking details for East Gippsland of the $5.3 billion Big Housing Build.
“There is a critical shortage of rental housing in East Gippsland which has been made worse by the loss of housing stock in the 2019-2020 bushfires,” said Mr Bull.
“The recently introduced changes to the Residential Tenancies Act and a strong property market have encouraged some landlords to sell their rented investment.
“This too is adversely impacting on the availability of social and affordable housing.
