A guide to the groups currently working on the Waterloo Public Housing Estate redevelopment.
Tenants Union of NSW
Kira Osborne and Thomas Chailloux have started work to independently resource tenants and community during planning for the Waterloo redevelopment.
The NSW government has been operating without a clear social housing policy. One move to rectify this shortcoming was the discussion paper entitled Social Housing in NSW, released in November 2014. In response to the discussion paper and recent changes in the structure of social housing, concerned inner Sydney tenants and community members attended an Inner Sydney Regional Council (ISRC) forum on January 14 to voice their recommendations about alleviating the social housing crisis.
The NSW government has opened the door for sweeping changes to social housing policy throughout the state.
