More than 100 new homes on the former Kinlock primary school site in Ferndale will generate and support jobs, during the construction phase of the development, and boost the diversity of affordable housing in the area.
The WA Department of Communities is seeking a private sector partner for the development of the site, which is 12 kilometres south-east of Perth’s central business district and close to transport, recreational and educational facilities, and the Canning River.
The site was acquired by the (then) Housing Authority (now WA Department of Communities) in 2011. The project will be an affordable and innovative land and housing development targeted at first homebuyers, families and downsizers.
The proposed development will offer a range of housing options, including social housing, full-market and shared-equity sales.
The Department of Communities will commence a Request for Detailed Proposal process in the near future.
