Thats such a great idea @wendy. State Governments own a lot of land. In Victoria they have been selling it off faster than ever before, and they often don’t even disclose how much for. The Public Housing Renewal Inquiry here showed that they sold inner city land in Kensington for basically the same price per acre as a sheep station. Actually the…[Read more]

Thats really disturbing, so it looks like people being physically evicted with all their things thrown on the side of the road? Did you know where it was said that they are ‘criminal activities’?

Wrap a ring of steel around renters? Such a weird metaphor.

Hi again @dini after the convo this morning I’ve found really great software thats allowed us to do all the things:
A calendar of events – anyone can add an event to be moderated, but if you’re a member of a group, you can add an event just for that group. The calendar is here
Document Sharing and Editing documents can also be added in the…[Read more]

Hi NSW reference group members – there are some requests for extra functions on the website to help the group collaborate and share documents. I’m trying to work out which parts of that are best achieved using this website – and which parts of it are better using other online tools… So lets discuss the options for all the bits you…[Read more]

Its crazy right? This time last year I really thought COVID would burst the property bubble. But it just keeps growing and getting more expensive. When’s it going to pop? 🎈

Hi Kobi – I hadn’t added an upload documents link.
I’m a little bit cautious to add too many buttons, also a little bit cautious about spammers/viruses.
So let’s try out this compromise – forum moderators now get this add media link above the comment box. People who aren’t moderators only get the little image icon on the right which only allows…[Read more]

Hi Frances, what areas are you concerned about? In regards to confidentiality, we should be aware on this site that some areas are private – like the NASH group page, but all of the forums and comments otherwise are publicly visible on the internet. If we want to though, we can make other private areas of the website.

Reuben replied to the topic Co-housing 🏡 in the forum 💡 Housing Solutions 1 year, 11 months ago
@loisknight *I think* cohousing is supposed to be housing that shares some resources, like living, laundry, kitchen or garden spaces. That would usually make the housing costs more affordable. And they might also share other things like occassional meals and social support.
Here is an example in Melbourne that seems interesting. It seems like a…[Read more]
Reuben replied to the topic Moving house 📦 in the forum 🏚 Housing Experiences 1 year, 11 months ago
I helped my neighbour move out from a domestic violence situation on the weekend. Its SO HARD to make the move from one rental to another. You have to pack up, clean, find another place, pay bond and rent, pay transport to move your stuff, buy new things, find new housemates. But to do all that while moving stuff out and having an ex-partner…[Read more]

Sounds like good news. By the way here is Dini’s media release about the NSW budget, I hope you like my meme?

Thanks for feedback @francesevery 🙏
What was the PDF you wanted to upload? We could add a thing to allow attachments if it would be useful? But I’m just careful not to add too many buttons, it could get too confusing!
What happened when you tried to post two links? Let me…[Read more]
