New innovative disability housing coming soon to Albury

Housing News

This vibrant new site will be Good Housing’s first project outside of Greater Sydney. It is also a fresh addition to Northcott’s existing disability housing options in Albury.

The unique, purpose-built property will feature independent villas. They have ergonomic design and stylish interiors. The villas will be built to accommodate residents with high support needs, while also fostering independence and security. The property is due for completion by mid-2023.

Partnering with Good Housing

Andrew Kew, Northcott’s Chief Operating Officer, said the new partnership with Good Housing is already proving to be a beneficial one. It ensures people with disability can live with dignity in their dream home that has been built to suit their requirements.

People with disability need good quality, purpose-built housing that is not isolated from other people. The Good Housing designs will properly support their needs. Plus the location in Lavington means that the residents can mix freely with their neighbours. They can also use local services and build long-term community relationships.

A welcome investment in Albury 

This development represents a major investment in Albury. It is an important step in meeting the specific needs of people living with disability in the region. It is also an expansion of job opportunities in disability support, and will add to Northcott’s existing housing team of 160 staff in the Albury area. 

Member for Albury Justin Clancy welcomed the ground-breaking for Northcott and Good Housing’s development in Lavington.

“There has been increasing pressure on our housing in Albury and across the region. It is vital that those living with disability can find a suitable home here in their community.”

“Northcott and Good Housing will deliver quality purpose-built housing with a number of different options as part of a fully inclusive community that supports everyone to live their best life,” said Mr Clancy.

Antony Anisse, Good Housing’s General Manager and co-founder, said the demand for dedicated disability housing in the region is at critical levels. Around 120 people in Albury are currently living in Specialist Disability Accommodation (SDA). However, half of those residents are in homes that do not always meet their specific needs.

“Good Housing creates smart and healthy homes to support the physical, mental, and emotional wellbeing of our tenants. We’re passionately committed to the ongoing pursuit of quality and our unique purposefully built homes foster independence, inclusivity, and peace of mind for all,” he said.

By joining forces with Northcott, Good Housing is able to consider NDIS SDA demand data and determine where the gaps are in the disability housing market. This will aid future decision making for new building sites.
