Wendouree Electorate – Constituency Question

Ms ADDISON (Wendouree) (14:43): My question is for the Minister for Housing, and I wish to congratulate him on the new portfolio. Will the minister please update me on the progress of the Big Housing Build and the projects currently underway in my electorate of Wendouree and explain how this investment will benefit my local community.

Our government’s Big Housing Build is delivering 12 000 new homes for Victorians in need and creating tens of thousands of new jobs. I applaud that the Big Housing Build will invest 25 per cent of the total $5.3 billion program across regional Victoria. Significantly Ballarat is guaranteed to share in economic and social benefits of the Big Housing Build, with a minimum local investment of $80 million for social housing and affordable housing in Ballarat.

I look forward to working with the minister to help deliver these transformative housing projects for my electorate of Wendouree.
