The ACT government has announced plans to relocate public housing tenants from Northbourne Avenue to several suburban sites in what it calls a “salt and pepper” approach to public housing.

Following a number of complaints about the government’s plans and lack of consultation, the Canberra Liberals raised the matter for debate in the Legislative Assembly.

The Canberra Liberals argue that the designated sites are not near the public facilities, employment opportunities and community support services that many public housing tenants rely on. Further, the developments in Wright, Holder and Chapman, each with thirty or more townhouses on each site, are not in line with the government’s “salt and pepper” approach.
