Woodanilling welcomes aged housing project
The Woodanilling Shire held the official opening of the Woodanilling Well-Aged Person Housing last Friday as the project finally reached completion.
The well-aged person housing project was originally developed by the 4WDL (Wagin, Woodanilling, West Arthur, Dumbleyung, Williams and Lake Grace) shires to provide affordable housing for seniors in regional towns.
The Woodanilling Well-Aged Person Housing project has a total of seven units and would be able to cater to nine seniors who can rent the houses with subsidised cost.
The number of seniors who reside in regional towns has increased over the years, as people choose to retire in their local community.
The majority of seniors who live in regional towns tend to enjoy the freedom that country life gives them and housing cost has always been one of the biggest problems that these seniors have to overcome.
This project has since succeeded in constructing multiple units in West Arthur, Williams, Wagin, Dumbleyung, Lake Grace, Kent and finally in Woodanilling.
The project was funded through Royalties for Regions and administered and supported by the Wheatbelt Development Commission with additional support by the Great Southern Development Commission.
