I was happy to hear that ACT Housing were asking people to leave or buy their house once their household income reached $80k.
However, I am disappointed that ACT housing are not enforcing this rule.
I know of a fulltime EL1, earning in excess of $100k who continues to live by herself in a four bedroom ACT Housing house in Mawson.
Being a nosy parker, I rang ACT Housing to report this situation, and was advised that ACT Housing will not force anyone to move, even to a smaller place; thus freeing up a family home.
I have family and friends who are sleeping rough. Also, I have friends who live in ACT Housing with three children in a 2 bedroom flat.
Why should a single woman keep a four bedroom house when she earns so much? The house is ideal for families, being close to schools the hospital and Woden Plaza.
Please be fair, ACT Housing. Children should not be enduring homelessness due to inability to enforce legislation.
