By this time next year, more quality homes will be under construction in Flaxmere.
With Council’s Tarbet St subdivision completed and all sections under contract, work on three more Council-owned parcels of land is well underway.
The layout of the three new areas is being designed with input from a community working group, and Council has called for Expressions of Interest from housing developers prepared to meet Council objectives around quality and sustainability.
The focus is on providing affordable housing across a range of sizes, from one to four bedrooms. They will meet best practice design principles, be sustainable, have private outdoor living spaces, appropriate garaging, and be energy efficient. There will also be public green spaces within each of the new subdivisions.
Buyers will be required to live in their homes for a minimum five years to ensure the homes are not bought up by investors.
Hastings mayor Sandra Hazlehurst says the developments are part of the Hastings Place-based housing plan, aimed at enabling quality, stable, healthy and affordable houses to be built.
“We know there’s a huge need out there and these developments are part of the collaborative solution we are working on with our Hastings Place-based partners.
“What is important to us with this housing is that it is good quality, well-designed, stands the test of time, and is accessible to a wide range of prospective buyers.”
The three parcels of land are at 244 Flaxmere Ave, 72 Caernarvon Drive, and land next to the Flaxmere Village Shopping Centre. They are expected to provide about 150 sections between them.
