As the the Bellingen Shire Council elections approach, the Housing Matters Action Group is hosting a ‘Meet the Candidates’ forum focused on the housing issues being experienced in our local community.
 
We believe that all levels of government have key roles to play in helping to fix the housing system and to bring about positive change.
 
In May this year, the current council declared a housing crisis in the Bellingen Shire. Issues include limited housing stock for rentals and purchase, a significant increase in housing prices and rents, lack of available land, and lack of investment in affordable housing solutions.
 
The Housing Matters Action Group has worked closely with Bellingen Shire Council over the last 4 years on a number of projects including:
  • Local Housing Strategy 2020-2040
  • Community Land Trust Feasibility
  • Existing infrastructure redevelopment for affordable rentals
This forum is an opportunity to hear from local candidates on this important topic.

This event will take place online.
Date: Thursday 18 November, 5.30-7.00pm
