Government Housing in Canberra

By all_stars 8 April 2010 81

I am still fairly new to Canberra having moved from NSW and am curious about the public housing system.

Is this an ACT only thing where housing commission rentals are placed among normal full price paying individuals?

It certainly makes it hard when trying to move, there is no suburb to stay away from it seems to be a case of trial and error with the neighbours. I’ve tried asking the real estate agents when we were looking at rental properties however they don’t seem to know if the house is surrounded by housing commission, or they simply won’t tell me for fear of not being able to lease the property.

I am wondering if the ACT Government has integrated housing commission like this in an effort to remove “bad suburbs” or if they just don’t realise other states do things differently?

What’s Your opinion?

I am convinced that given the intolerable state of ACT housing and the travesty we must live under, that tenants is some of the “Ghetto” blocks and Lots have a majoe plaintive action legal case against the government, duty of care and otherwise.We pay rent for these torture chamber Ghettos they make.These places are dangerous in the extreme, let alone the constant mental hardship and stress living here.
ACT Housing has caused my chronic depression, and I have no clinical history of a chemical imbalance causing the disease.
