New public housing boost for Atherton
ATHERTON has been included in the State Government’s decision to purchase 64 houses or units state-wide for public housing.
The government says $25 million will be invested in se-curing the residential dwellings in a bid to boost the public housing stock for vulnerable people.
Contracts have already been entered into for properties in Atherton but the government declined to say how many properties were involved.
Other properties will be purchased in Gordonvale, Smithfield, Tully and a number of other towns throughout the State.
