Hume Community Housing Association has officially launched its new social and affordable housing development at Warwick Farm.

More than 35 residents can now call the 10 townhouses and four villas home.

The new development provides homes to people on very low to moderate incomes, that are both affordable to rent and to live in.

Fowler MP Chris Hayes and Hume’s chairman Robert Vine and chief executive Nicola Lemon visited the site last week for the official launch.

At the event, Mr Hayes said social and affordable housing was increasingly important, particularly for those with disability due to increasing housing costs and affordability issues.

New resident of the development Tori [last name withheld] said that since moving into the property at Gallop Street she has had a weight lifted off her shoulders knowing that she has a safe and secure home to live in for the next two years.

“I can’t put into words how good I feel. I really can call this place ‘home’,” she said.

“I thank Hume for this amazing opportunity.

“It’s wonderful living in a brand new home for the very first time and my aim is to one day buy my own property.”

The development has been primarily funded through Hume’s debt and equity, along with a Department of Family and Community Services grant and funding from Federal and State government’s National Rental Affordability Scheme.

It was also made possible due to a joint partnership with the Liverpool Neighbourhood Connections, who have provided ongoing support in connecting new residents to the community.

Hume has delivered more than 1700 properties in Western Sydney.
