Marys Hope Road, Rosetta

About the Project

With panoramic views across the Derwent River and Mt Direction, Housing Choices Tasmania’s architectural development of 26 free-standing homes with private gardens in Rosetta, was completed in 2021.

The site is located close to education and employment opportunities, healthcare, schools, parks and support services. Built to six-star energy rating, the two-bedroom homes offer a high level of comfort, low utility bills and clever design features that factor in the future housing needs of residents.

Funded jointly via a grant from the Australian Federal Government Department of Social Services under the Hobart City Deal and Housing Choices Tasmania, these spacious, beautifully-designed homes deliver much needed social housing for vulnerable Tasmanians, including people living with a disability and other priority applicants.

What is Community Housing?

Over 100,000 Australian households currently live in community housing-owned and managed homes. They are from all walks of life - single people, couples, young families, older women, newly arrived Victorians and people living with a disability.

The community housing sector is a long standing and vital component of the Australian housing spectrum, alongside public housing and private housing. ‘Social housing’ is an umbrella term that includes both public housing and community housing. It generally indicates housing that involves some degree of rental subsidy. In Tasmania, public housing is owned and managed by Housing Tasmania. Community housing is owned or managed by non-government, not-for-profit, registered housing agencies like Housing Choices.

Community housing providers are regulated by the State and hold specialist expertise in property development, property management, tenancy management and community development. We provide safe and secure homes to those who live on low incomes, often living with disability. We are committed under our charter to deliver safe, secure and affordable homes to low-income renters, help residents maintain stable tenancies, and ensure they have access to support services and live in communities that will improve their circumstances and life opportunities.
