New social housing development for Bendigo

2021-09-16
by Wintringham Communications

In partnership with the Victorian State Government, and thanks to the generosity of the Peter & Lyndy White Foundation, Wintringham has secured funding to build a 35-unit social housing development for older people who are vulnerable to homelessness in Golden Square, Bendigo.

This Bendigo project is part of the Victorian Government’s $5.3 billion Big Housing Build which will  provide more social and affordable housing for people in need across metropolitan and regional Victoria.

News about the project was welcomed by Deputy Chief Executive, Michael Deschepper, who says the project will provide many people with a purpose designed, safe and secure permanent home. “This initiative really recognises that availability of social housing is essential for a person’s wellbeing, and for the wider community,” he says.

“Unfortunately more and more people are being priced out of the private rental market and are at-risk of homelessness. So we’re thrilled to see the government committing to increase social housing stock to support vulnerable Victorians. We are also very grateful for the on-going support of the Peter & Lyndy White Foundation.

“Given Wintringham’s track record of delivering social housing across Victoria, including neighbouring Heathcote, we think this development will be a valued addition for the Golden Square community.”

The project is currently in community consultation and expecting to be available to welcome new residents in late 2022.
