As many of my readers know I generally type with passion as these empty houses directly affect the area I live and work in . And as a matter of interest every single person I talk to think leaving these houses empty in a housing crisis this its absolute madness.
Julia Gillard are you Listening
Well that would be a no so instead of ranting lets look at the nt news I have a full cover copy of their front page as part of this post and they have covered this story two days in a row. Not to mention the coverage over the past year. Lets look what’s happening in the NT that is driving this ridiculous housing situation.
What’s Causing The NT housing Shortage
- Impex starting construction
- Defence moving back a long lost regiment (that they moved away 2 years ago)
- Marines coming to Darwin
- Associated construction for above
We have contacted many politicians about this and the madness continues the defence department has just shut up shop and gone to ground. So we need to start the campaign again WE NEED THOSE HOUSES RELEASED to the people of Darwin or put defence back in them this is a maddening situation that is laughable if it wasn’t so serious.
Darwin now has a rental shortage that is laughable tenants are bidding for properties I wonder what many of these new people would think if they knew about these 300 empty.
Now I know I’m sounding like a broken record but lets say it again SAVE those Houses and help alleviate the NT housing shortage
