Urgent Meeting: Save Public Housing in Ascot Vale

Labor is planning to sell off public land in Ascot Vale to private developers.

Labor's plan could force residents to move out of their homes and break up the existing community.

It’s likely some current public housing land will be replaced with high-rise private apartment buildings, and the community will lose valuable open space.

Replacement social housing may not stay in public hands or meet the community's needs.

Melbourne needs more public housing, not less.

Join Adam Bandt and the Greens at a public meeting to fight for public housing.

All welcome. Accessible venue.

WHEN           
May 27, 2017 at 11am - 12:30pm

WHERE
 
Wingate Avenue Community Centre (Men's Shed)
13A Wingate Ave
Ascot Vale, VIC

In February this year 2017 Adam also issued a Press Release when Martin Foley, Vic ALP Minister for Housing revealed his plans for 11 public housing estates - plans that will reap megabucks for consortiums, developers and companies and deliver stuff-all in addressing the housing crisis, housing the homeless, or alleviating the 34,000 on the public housing waiting list.

Why was there no Media coverage regarding the press release from Adam Bandt's office ??

On the so-called 'public housing renewal', Labor says that there will be a paltry 10% increase in the building of  'social housing' on these sites. Do not assume this to mean public housing!!
And on what is now precious public land, expect huge private development.

As we have seen in Ashburton, this can also result in an actual reduction in the capacity to house people due to changes made in the number of bedrooms - replacing 3 bedroom homes with 1 and 2 bedroom dwellings.

Community Housing Associations are tendering for these PPP contracts.
This is the corporate face of Community Housing. ( ie Property Developers.)

Wake up and smell the coffee!

The 'Renewal of Public Housing' under Labor appears to be a front for the privatisation of public housing and public land- the displacement of vulnerable people and families- and the gentrification of the area. And on a truly massive scale!  

1,100 public housing homes to be demolished. According to tenants, many of these were recently fully renovated and most are safe and comfortable.

Adam Bandt - 'There was a time long ago when the Labor party believed in building public assets like public housing, but it seems they are now just following the Liberals’ privatisation agenda.'
