Wendouree Electorate – Constituency Question

Juliana ADDISON (Wendouree) (14:50): My constituency question is for the Minister for Housing in the other place regarding our government’s Big Housing Build in my electorate of Wendouree.

Ballarat needs more social and affordable housing, and I am very proud of our government’s investments across the City of Ballarat. One project that I am particularly proud of is the $50 million transformation of the Leawarra neighbourhood in Delacombe. Minister, what progress is being made to deliver the Leawarra neighbourhood housing project in Delacombe?

The majority of the 147 homes in the Leawarra estate were built in the 1970s, and some are no longer fit for purpose. The open spaces are poorly utilised, and residents have told us that they feel unsafe in Leawarra park. The roads through the estate have poor connections to Delacombe Primary and Doug Dean Reserve.

I know that this investment will change lives, and I look forward to the minister’s response.
