Housing Diversity and Affordability in Anglesea

Nov 16, 2021


Did you know?


• Median weekly rent is $590 compared to $380 for Regional Victoria
• House prices have risen 73% over 5 years compared to 45% in Regional
Victoria
• Our population is ageing. Forecasts show the largest increase between
2016 and 2026 is predicted to be in the 70-84 yr old group
• Already our more mature community members are being forced to leave.
There are limited options for them to down-size
• Local families’ children can’t afford to live here.
• Many single parent/ low income households are experiencing mortgage or
rental stress
• Worker accommodation, both permanent and seasonal, is at crisis point
Businesses in town face an uncertain future if this is not addressed
Where will you down-size to?
Where will your kids live when they leave home?
If there’s nowhere for workers to live, how will your business
survive/thrive?
The Shire is looking at some of these issues and a community working group has been formed to
begin a conversation, are you interested to join?
