Public housing is not new to Canberra, and it forms an integral part of our community. The people of Canberra have a long history of supporting diversity and social inclusion, and that community support continues today. Recent survey results indicate that more than seven out of 10 Canberrans want to see public housing in their neighbourhood, and two-thirds support the redevelopment of old stock.
A phone poll of 1400 Canberrans found more than 70 per cent were in favour of their suburb continuing to include public housing. Find more information about these results below:
