We are collaborating with Byron Bay resident and ethical housing leader Jessie Summons (founder of Good Designs) to determine whether there is enough local interest in establishing the first citizen-led housing project in Byron Shire.
Its no secret that Byron Shire has one of the most expensive real estate markets in Australia. This makes Byron one of the toughest markets for local residents to buy into, especially younger people and families on middle incomes.
The project aims to deliver:
- Long term stability for local residents
- Around 5 well designed high quality sustainable townhouses and/or apartments
- Demonstrate the potential for “at cost” baugruppen housing in Byron Shire.
Our target time frame for the project is to:
- Establish the Collective in mid-late 2020
- Acquire a site in late 2020-early 2021
- ~3 year development
- Completion in 2024
