Potential gentrification for Qld suburb

By Staff Reporter

A suburb in Queensland with some of the “most densely concentrated public housing” is set to be changed dramatically, according to minister for housing and public works Bruce Flegg.

A Logan Renewal Board is the first step in building more public housing in Logan City.

"Logan has some of the most densely concentrated public housing in the state and over the years has had to deal with the effects of that,” said Mr Flegg.

The board, comprised of representatives for the council, state government, community groups and other housing organizations, is currently looking for a large piece of land for building 200 units.

"One of the biggest challenges facing the public housing system is that the properties we own are no longer suitable for the kind of high-needs people we house," he said.

Tenants currently living in public housing in Logan would be invited to voluntarily relocate.

Older properties in the housing portfolio will then be redeveloped or sold, with proceeds to be funneled into newer property.
