Tweed Shire Council can apply to share in $30 million in funding to help fast track new homes across regional NSW, ahead of the Government’s initial response to the Regional Housing Taskforce recommendations.

Member for Tweed, Geoff Provest, said Tweed Shire is one of 21 council areas experiencing high growth, so can apply for funding for enabling infrastructure and public spaces, if they can demonstrate it will speed up the delivery of new housing.

“The Tweed is a fantastic place to live so it’s no wonder people are flocking to make it their home,” Geoff said.

“New homes need new infrastructure such as parks, kerbs, guttering and new roads. This funding supports councils to deliver this infrastructure so we can get more homes built”

“This funding will encourage Tweed Shire Council to take action and unlock housing in our region by implementing the recommendations of the Regional Housing Taskforce at a local level.”
