Housing forum

THE region’s housing crisis will be discussed at a forum being hosted by the newly-formed Tableland Housing Action Group.

The group has been initiated by a small number of concerned Tableland locals and was created as a result of the obvious housing difficulties experienced by so many in the region.

The group aims to engage with others to devise paths of action in a community-based approach to easing the Tableland housing crisis.

The forum and film event will be held on Saturday 15 October in Yungaburra from 3.30pm.

Presenter for the event, Dr Geraldine Mallinson, is a PhD graduate from JCU Cairns where she studied the position of housing in society and the social consequences of homelessness. Her research confirms the need for urgent action, with the findings forming the basis of Dr Mallinson’s book “Housing the Homelessness”.

Anyone wishing more information about the Tablelands Housing Crisis Film and Forum which will be held at 2/20 Eacham Road, Yungaburra, can contact Alan on 0458 408 488
