Housing Trust homes demolished while more than 22,000 wait

While more than 22,000 South Australians remain on the Housing SA waiting list, 65 Housing Trust homes have been demolished in Marden.

The homes have been demolished to make way for a new development.

The State Labor Government is planning to sell 540 Housing Trust homes this financial year to raise approximately $100 million.

“For ten years this Labor Government has been running down our public housing stock and now they’re selling it off in ever-increasing numbers to pay off their massive debt,” Shadow Housing Minister John Gardner said.

“Meanwhile, the 22,000 South Australians on the waiting list for public housing must be wondering why dozens of units have remained vacant for years.

“Premier Weatherill and Housing Minister Hunter need to explain to South Australians what they are doing to reduce this waiting list.

“This is just another example of a decade of Labor mess in South Australia.

“South Australians are waiting far too long for public housing in this state and it is simply unacceptable.”
