Home Builder Cessnock

Considering an Affordable New Home or Granny Flat around Cessnock?

Here’s a stack of reasons why Cessnock is a great place to build:

The Hunter Region of New South Wales, Australia houses the peaceful city of Cessnock. It is about 52 km away from the road west of Newcastle. The Cessnock Estate was initially owned by John Campbell, which was given a grant back in 1826. The administrative center of the City of Cessnock LGA is there too. The local area of this region was called “The Coalfields” and served as the gateway to other vineyards cities. The Hunter Valley to be specific that also included Mount View, Rothbury, Pokolbin, Branxton, Broke, and Lovedale.

The city is now a small but peaceful area proving to be a great place to live. However, the housing crisis in Australia has hit many across the country. The chair of Homelessness Australia, Jenny Smith suggests that building more affordable homes might be the only way to bring people out of this crisis. Many have chosen to live in accommodation since they cannot afford a home.

Here’s some facts:

  • The Homelessness Crisis

    According to a census conducted recently, this is a great challenge for the people of Australia since 116,000 people are homeless. This number keeps rising, showing that people are unable to afford their own home. She further explained that the number keeps rising because the private rental market is becoming expensive every day. This makes it impossible for people with low incomes to afford a home.

    In 2018 alone, 288,000 people had to go to Homelessness Australia for services. This was a four percent increase in number from the previous year. She further said that people who avail of the services were forced to stay at the crisis accommodation for months on end. Some even end up staying for years since getting their own house looks impossible.

    Individuals who face crisis end up living in those accommodations for such a long time because they are unable to find an exit. The only possible solution is to build more homes that are affordable. Building a bigger homelessness facility would only increase the influx without an exit. Resulting in an increase in the crisis. According to the report by the Federal Government of Australia, there are about 190,000 people on the social housing waiting list.

  • Affordable Housing Projects

    Launch Housing in Melbourne has requested the government to provide a solution to this problem. They suggested that the government-owned land available in the city be utilized to build affordable homes. These housing project idea spread across the country and many houses are being built since 2018.

    A lot of unused lands owned by the government are sitting across Australia. Even though private companies are taking up these housing projects, they are cheap. This solution simply ends the crisis of homelessness across all major and smaller cities in the country. These self-sufficient structures help people sleeping rough life in their own accommodation.

    In Victoria alone, about 25,000 people are homeless and about 1100 go through a rough night. One success is of a woman named Deborah. For the first time in her life, she has been accommodated into her own affordable home. She has been homeless since the age of 13. In Hobart, over 3300 people are on the waiting list of social housing. This number has not gone down but the demand has increased over the years. The homelessness crisis has two reasons that the officials have recognized. One being those men who are unable to work on a stable job because of health and addiction issues. Two being those women who are affected by family violence and relationship breakdowns. Affordable housing seems like the only solution in such a dreadful crisis.
