Campaspe shire plans rates rise to 4.75 per cent from 5.75 per cent, as part of a government-led effort to reduce the cost of housing. It will also be required to cut staff to half the current level, and work to attract and retain staff.
The rate rise would affect nearly 10,000 people but no one is likely to find it affordable. A family of four that earns just above the current level, $1,074 a week, would need to pay $13,600 in rent — $10,550 under the current system and $13,500 under the plan introduced last week.
Brisbane housing market analyst John Graham estimates that the changes will hit people like Richard, because안마 they are currently getting a good quality of home they could never hope to afford under the current government’s low housing 더킹카지노target.
“You would need to pay twice as much rent for an average home or $9,000 an hour to afford that,” he said. “A couple of years ago, what my house was was under $7,000 and they just took it off from me.”
But Mr Graham believes Mr Abbott, who is trying to sell the government on the importance of creating affordable housing, has underestimated the effect of his plan on some of Brisbane’s poorest families who would lose out if prices rose to 4.75 per cent.
“You cannot continue doing this as there 화천출장안마is nothing to offer you as an additional income that you won’t lose,” he said.
The federal government’s new target for affordable housing comes after a $5.8 million increase in council housing funding by Queensland in 2015, followed by another $9.3 million in 2015-16.
For the last three years, all public housing in the Brisbane region has been funded from state funding, which Mr Morrison has defended, arguing that local councils were doing their fair share of work.
He said there has been “a huge leap” in housing quality since the last housing targets were introduced back in 2010.
But his new policy would not impact on the ability of local councils to offer local housing for low-income households that were already available.
It would make the move more complicated to develop projects but will not be introduced until council tenants are already paying for council-owned housing under the current system.
Brisbane council’s housing spokeswoman Liz Robinson said the changes did not mean people in low income could not be part of local and government housing schemes such as those aimed at families wit
