You can’t solve homelessness without housing - we desperately need more supported & affordable housing in the inner city,
2/ Planning approval to extend the City’s affordable housing levy across the entire local government area,
1/ Funding for a new ‘Common Ground’ at Marian St Redfern as proposed by the City, Mission Australia Housing & Macquarie Corporate Holdings,
I am calling on Premier to ensure supported housing for people sleeping rough in #MartinPlace & work with City on long term solutions,
Tonight I will ask councillors to support a City owned community facility & $100,000 in funding to govt's permanent facility,
Minister for Family and Community Services has already given support to a 24/7 safe space,
Mr Priestly agreed to dismantle tents in #MartinPlace if 24/7 communal safe space established in city centre while permanent space developed,
Relieved to say we've negotiated a peaceful resolution to the crisis in #MartinPlace after my meetings today with Lanz Priestley & Premier.
