$200 million has been allocated over 2016-2017 to 2026-2027 to build additional living spaces such as bedrooms, granny flats, bathrooms, and outdoor cooking places, to improve the liveability of existing homes.
Room to Breathe is designed to:
- ease the pressure of over-crowding in existing homes
- allow homes to be better used
- reduce wear and tear
- provide opportunity for family-based accommodation options for kinship care, elderly and high dependency tenants.
Tenants have direct input into the extensions to their home.
