MINISTER FOR HOUSING AND COMMUNITY SERVICES

LEGISLATIVE ASSEMBLY QUESTION

QUESTION NO. 704

Housing Trust - Priority Housing for Tradespeople

MR. CORNWELL - Asked the Minister for Housing and Community

Services - In relation to the proposed new Department of Foreign

Affairs and Trade building, will the ACT Housing Trust provide

accommodation for tradespeople from outside Canberra without

seeking a six month residency or employment requirement.

MR. CONNOLLY - The answer to the Members question is as follows:

Tradespeople employed in Canberra will be eligible to make application to register for public housing in the normal manner.

As is the case with any other applicant they will be required to meet the eligibility criteria including the residency/working criteria and the income barrier.

If they wish to apply for a priority allocation of housing it is necessary to meet the 6 month residency/working criteria.
