Housing upgrades update

June 28, 2022

The Social Housing Economic Recovery Package (SHERP) Grants Program is a State Government initiative that provides funding for new and upgraded community housing. 

Earlier this year, we received approval for refurbishment works for a grant totalling over $1.7 million. Over the last two months, property refurbishments have been completed and have included repaints and flooring replacements.

Currently, works are being undertaken at complexes, including Wright St, Highgate, Ammanford Crescent, Butler, and Ladera Drive, Clarkson. These works include external painting, fence installation and structural repairs. The following projects are forecast for the next two months:

Solar installation: For 23 properties, including 6 lodging properties. Over $100,000 worth of solar panels to be installed.
Swan River Lodge: Rear balcony decking replacement and office refurbishment. Scheduled for August.
Foundry Road, Midland: Security upgrades, including a new car park vehicle gate.
Kutcharo Crescent, Joondalup: Property refurbishment. Expected to commence at the end of August.
