Protecting public housing

With over 50 000 people on NSW’s social housing waitlist, more public housing is urgently needed. But rather than invest in new public housing, the former NSW Liberal and Labor governments have been selling off thousands of public homes, worth billions of dollars.  

This term through council, the Greens have supported public housing tenants and local resident groups to stop the sell off of public housing terraces in Glebe by the Land and Housing Corporation, and stop the demolition of public housing estates like the Franklyn Street estate.  

Protecting, upgrading and expanding public housing remains a key priority for the Greens on council. Please get in touch with the office to get involved in our current campaigns to protect public housing in the inner-city.
