Completed Projects

White Gum Valley

Access Housing’s development within LandCorp’s WGV estate forms part of a diverse range of housing types and living options focussing on modern, sustainable design.

This project is unique because the 12 residential properties will specifically cater to the needs of a group of professional artists working in the Fremantle area who have been priced out of the local housing market.

Residents at the development are all part of the not-for-profit Sustainable Housing for Artists and Creatives (SHAC) cooperative, which approached Access Housing several years ago to help them provide affordable housing options to their members. Access Housing agreed to develop the project, sell dwellings to any members who had the means to purchase a unit and manage the balance for a minimum of 10 years under the National Rental Affordability Scheme and normal tenancy management arrangements.

The development contains three 3-bedroom townhouses, eight 2-bedroom units, one 1-bedroom unit and one communal artist studio.

The building has been fitted with solar panels and solar batteries, allowing for collected and stored solar energy to be used as the primary electrical source for each of the residential dwellings and the studio. As a result, the SHAC development is one of the first strata residential properties in Australia to offer residents strata community-based solar energy capture, storage and shared usage infrastructure.

In addition to being property developer and owner, Access Housing will take responsibility for the development’s electricity administration. This will see Access Housing essentially become an energy retailer to the property, offering tenants reduced price electricity.

The SHAC development is one of several strata developments within the WGV estate to benefit from solar power infrastructure, which will allow for significant electricity bill savings to residents as they will not be solely reliant on the electrical grid.

Project completed: May 2017.

Boyanup

Part of Access Housing’s Royalties for Regions-funded South West Ageing in Place Housing Pilot projects saw nine seniors villas built at Boyanup. Three existing units at the site will also undergo modern refurbishments before being made available again to local seniors seeking to remain in their home town as they grow older. The other component of the projects will see 14 new villas built for seniors in Dardanup (10 minutes north of Boyanup). These are due for completion in June 2017.

The new South West Ageing in Place Housing Pilot project homes range in size from 1 bedroom, 1 bathroom units to 3 bedroom, 2 bathroom units and feature high quality fittings and finishes. The homes also include special Liveable Housing Design features to suit residents’ abilities and changing needs.

The South West Ageing in Place Housing Pilot projects were made possible by a $4.87 million investment through the State Government’s Royalties for Regions program. Access Housing purchased the land and, together with project expenses, has invested $1.5 million into the projects.

Project completed: May 2017.

Busselton

A partnership between the Disability Services Commission, the Housing Authority and Access Housing was formed in 2015 to design and construct five homes to support six individuals to live independently in their home town of Busselton. Access Housing funded the development of two 2-bedroom, 2-bathroom units, while the Commission provided the Housing Authority with $1.6 million for land purchase, design and construction of two 2–bedroom, 2–bathroom units and one 3–bedroom, 2–bathroom house.

This project has provided fantastic social outcomes as it allows local residents to live independently within their home town and adds to the supply of not only affordable housing in the region but also specialist disability accommodation.

Accessibility features of the homes include wide entry areas, halls and doorways, hobless showers in the bathroom and open-plan living areas.

The units are located in a central location within the township, ensuring residents remain close to all required amenities and support services.
