Housing talk

Roybn Stevens

City Hall will host an “expert panel” next week while drawing up plans for helping an estimated 11,000 local households needing help to keep roofs over their heads.

Representatives from Aboriginal, charity, municipal and not-for-profit organisations would lead the discussion at Let’s Talk About Social House next Thursday, City Hall announced this week.

“In planning for the City’s social housing needs of the future, we have been talking to users and providers of social housing and housing developers,” said City community life director Robyn Stevens.

“This forum, as part of The City Presents series, provides an opportunity to have a conversation about social housing with the whole community. I encourage people to come along, listen to our expert panel and ask questions.

“As a compassionate community, we’re all interested in how we can work towards everyone having secure, affordable, long-term housing that is suitable for their needs.

City Hall said bookings for the free talk were open at geelongaustralia.com.au/news.
