ONE thousand new affordable homes will be built over the next four years to address the state’s housing needs, the state government announced yesterday.
Human Services Minister Cassy O’Connor said two hundred plots of land would also be released for affordable housing.
The houses will be built where required, based on population patterns.
Ms O’Connor said 1404 new affordable homes were built over the four years to June 2012.
Next year, Housing Tasmania will start work on two houses each on Flinders and Cape Barren islands, as well as employment-related accommodation in Launceston, under a national partnership agreement on remote indigenous housing.
A government spokesman said Housing Tasmania was working with the Aboriginal community on the Launceston unit, including agreeing upon a site and seeking council approval.
It is hoped construction will begin later this financial year.
The two units on Flinders Island will be built by June 2013 and the remainder by 2015.
Ms O’Connor said more than $200 million from the state and Commonwealth had been invested in affordable housing.
“The positive impact a new home has on someone’s life is profound and the homes we are building are contributing to better, more connected communities as well,” she said.
