Housing project not ‘genuine’
The high-density housing development at Emerald Shores is not really a low-cost housing development, in my view. It feels like landbanking a section of prime real estate for 30 years.
Residents of this proposed development pay a minimum of $200k for a tiny home, $6000 ($115 per week) per year to Bluehaven for the lease or ground rent, and in 30 years need to move the house and are left with nowhere to live. This is not building a sustainable community or providing genuine lowcost housing to people who need it.
If this development goes ahead, it will prove TCC is sustaining developers and not the local community it has been elected to serve. Leigh Park
