More housing options for regional seniors

The South West Ageing in Place Housing Pilot Projects were officially opened in Boyanup last week, celebrating the completion of 23 new affordable homes for seniors in Boyanup and Dardanup.

The development was opened by Agricultural Region MLC Darren West, Access Housing chief executive officer Garry Ellender, Capel shire president Murray Scott and Dardanup shire president Mick Bennett.

The new homes feature a mix of two and three-bedroom villas delivered to offer seniors the opportunity to move into affordable housing better suited to their needs, without having to leave town.

The nine villas in Boyanup were completed in May and 14 villas were completed at Dardanup in June.

Capel shire community development officer Donna Sims said there was a clear need for suitable housing options for seniors.
