Papaioea Place social housing development

  • Completion Date22 December 2023
The new homes at Papaioea Place are painted in cheerful colours.

Since the redevelopment project kicked off in 2019, we have created an additional 38 new social housing units, bringing the complex up to a total of 85 homes.

The properties are open-plan and future-proofed for any potential mobility or agility needs. They're also double-glazed and well insulated, securing 4 and 5-star Lifemark certification.

The big picture

We want to ensure a healthy community where everyone has access to healthy, safe and affordable housing and neighbourhoods. The Council provides warm, safe and affordable housing to people on low incomes who are superannuitants, have long-term disabilities, or experience barriers to renting in the private market.

This project formed part of the following four Council plans for 2018-21: Housing and Future Development Plan, Safe Community Plan, Social Housing Plan, Urban Design Plan. These plans have been incorporated into our revised strategic direction following Council's adoption of a new 10-Year Plan in July 2021.
