Join Marrickville’s Affordable Housing Committee
As the Co-Chair of the Affordable Housing Committee I’m hoping we can build a dynamic committee with energy and ideas to tackle some of the complex housing issues we have in Marrickville.
There’s some great projects that Marrickville Council already has underway, which include creating new affordable housing on Council owned land, working in partnership with local services to better support vulnerable boarding house residents, and advocating for stronger planning powers so Council can ensure there is real affordable housing in new developments.

Marrickville Council has recently agreed to establish an Affordable Housing Committee and we are seeking 4-6 community members with a strong interest, knowledge and skills in Affordable Housing and a demonstrated interest and connection with the Marrickville LGA.
