Artist’s impression of the proposed public housing development in Taylor
The Public Housing Renewal Taskforce has identified four sites in Taylor to be developed for public housing. There will also be some single detached public housing dwellings developed in this suburb. The sites in Taylor are zoned Residential.
- The development at Block 3 Section 37 Taylor comprises 32 dwellings in a multi-unit development and 8 townhouses for DHA.
- The development at Block 9 Section 39 Taylor comprises 26 dwellings in a multi-unit development and 10 townhouses for DHA.
- The development at Block 1 Section 20 Taylor comprises five dwellings in a townhouse development.
- The development at Block 5 Section 23 Taylor comprises six dwellings in a townhouse development.
Construction has commenced on all sites and the Taskforce expects the first properties to be completed in late 2018, subject to weather conditions.
The Taskforce is also constructing properties for Defence Housing Australia on two sites in Taylor. These developments will promote a greater social mix with new public housing adjacent to housing for Australian Defence Force members and their families, providing quality housing that is integrated into the wider community, just like all new public housing being developed across Canberra.
