Bellingen affordable housing project announced!
The Royal Freemasons Benevolent Institution sites on Bowra and Watson streets will be rebuilt or refurbished to create 40 apartments for women over 55.
We’re thrilled to share that Melinda Pavey MP and Pat Conaghan MP have jointly announced funding for the Royal Freemasons Benevolent Institution (RFBI) to develop up to 40 affordable housing homes for older women on low incomes in Bellingen. Work will commence early in 2022.
We have been working closely with Bellingen Shire Council on this project for more than 3 years.
On behalf of the Housing Matters Hub Team.
