Darwin to get cheap housing but Alice not yet





Alice Springs is missing out on a low-rent housing initiative by the NT Government but it has been promised for later.
Acting Chief Minister Delia Lawrie said yesterday the government has finalised the establishment of Venture Housing Company "to provide affordable housing options for Territorians".
Dwellings will be made available at 20% below market rate in the Darwin suburbs of Parap (35 units) and Driver (21), according to a media release by Ms Lawrie, which does not mention Alice Springs.
In response to questions from Alice News Online Mychelle Curran, of Territory Housing, said as the Venture Housing Company becomes more established further affordable rental properties will be made available across the Territory.

ILLUSTRATION: The planned Kilgariff suburb. The existing rural subdivisions of Rangeview Estate and Heffernan Road are in the top right-hand corner of the image. The airport is at the bottom.
