Practical completion is set for the end of the month for new aged accommodation units at Brunswick River Cottages, supported by a $1.6 million State Government investment.
Regional Development Minister Alannah MacTiernan and Murray-Wellington MLA Robyn Clarke were today (May 28) given a sneak preview of the eight rentals, ahead of residents moving into their new homes from Monday June 1.
All new cottages have been snapped up, with a waiting list established as people get in line for the opportunity to continue enjoying regional life.
The State Government has prioritised meeting the aged accommodation needs of regional Western Australia to allow older residents to age in the communities they call home.
Through the Regional Aged Accommodation Program, the State Government is supporting aged accommodation projects in the South West, Great Southern, Peel, Wheatbelt and Mid West.
The Brunswick River Cottage expansion received $1.5 million through the program as well as a further $100,000 from the State Government through the Local Projects, Local Jobs program.
In the South West, the State Government has also allocated funding towards the Armstrong Village Project in Dunsborough and the Bridge Street Affordable Housing Project in Donnybrook.
