Construction on a $3.25 million development for ageing residents in Donnybrook is underway, with $2 million in funding support from the State Government.
Regional Development Minister Alannah MacTiernan and Collie-Preston MLA Jodie Hanns today turned the sod on the Bridge Street Housing Project.
A total of 10 independent living units will be built by Alliance Housing, providing affordable rental options for over-65s.
Once complete, there will be eight two-bedroom units and two one-bedroom units built to adaptable housing standards on Donnybrook’s Bridge Street.
The development is close to the services and amenities located in the Donnybrook town centre, which is currently being given a makeover.
In line with the McGowan Government’s commitment to maximising local business participation, South-West based JAK Civil has been contracted to undertake site works with Smith Constructions the successful tender for construction.
The Bridge Street Housing Project is being delivered by Alliance Housing, with funding support from the State Government, and land from the Shire of Donnybrook-Balingup.
The McGowan Government is funding the project through the Regional Aged Accommodation Program, which helps to address the aged accommodation needs of regional Western Australia. In the South West, Brunswick River Cottages has expanded with support from the program, and Capecare Dunsborough will open its doors in the coming months. Read more.
