We have completed the first year of the Ministry of Housing, which brought all the State Government
housing agencies under one umbrella with assets worth more than $5 billion.
It was a busy and successful year. Our New Living program won the prestigious World Habitat Award
and the first New Living project at Lockridge was successfully completed.
In the past year we had a large contruction program for our rental housing and are looking forward to
another large program and working with you this year.
This year we are budgeting almost $146 million to build almost 1700 dwellings.
Under the Landstart banner a number of successful joint ventures with the private sector are under way,
with Seacrest in Geraldton and Ellenbrook in the Swan Valley leading the way in the technology stakes.
A total of 1,658 lots will be created by Landstart’s broadhectare development, while New Living will
develop a further 102 lots, as well as refurbishing hundreds of dwellings throughout the New Living areas.
The Community Housing program is burgeoning and Aboriginal Housing will increase in both the
urban and remote areas.
I hope you will find the enclosed informative and helpful.
