Community Housing Limited (CHL) has further consolidated its national presence by receiving approval to operate as a registered housing provider in Queensland. Queensland has been experiencing shortage of affordable housing in recent years, an issue that CHL is keen to help address.
The new registration consolidates CHL’s national approach to the delivery of affordable housing. “With the registration as a housing provider in Queensland, CHL has consolidated itself as the only national community housing provider operating in all six States across the country. CHL is already a growth provider in NSW, Tasmania, WA and SA and a registered Housing Association in Victoria.”
“It’s fantastic for CHL to receive the approval and be entrusted with the confidence of the State government, and we are committed to making a constructive contribution to growing the stock of affordable housing in the State. With two decades of experience and demonstrated capabilities in the affordable housing sector, CHL aims to minimize the affordable housing shortage in Queensland”, says Steve Bevington, CHL’s Managing Director.
Mr. Bevington says CHL is one of six organisations in the Living Logan Consortium which is one of the shortlisted consortia currently tendering for the Logan Renewable Initiative announced by the Queensland State Government and is part of one of the shortlisted consortiums. Concurrently CHL is engaging with local organisations to develop partnerships to deliver affordable housing to meet housing needs.
CHL is a vertically-integrated provider of affordable housing, that is, the organisation sources funding, locates land, develops projects, designs and constructs housing, and then manages the housing and its tenants for the long term. As part of this process, Mr. Bevington says there will be numerous opportunities for local subcontractors.
CHL currently manages a property portfolio in excess of 4200 across the country and aims to make a significant contribution to the growth of affordable housing in Queensland. “We will achieve this by making the most of the support offered by the Queensland government and in our ability to create successful partnerships locally”, adds Steve.
