Community Housing

Community Housing is managed by a community based organisation and offers secure and affordable rental housing for people on low to moderate incomes. Rent is calculated at below market rent and depends on your household income.

Rural Housing does not hold a waiting list for Community Housing. Instead, all approved applications sit on a Housing Register for 12 months. After 12 months you will be contacted and given the choice to either update your details or be removed from the list. When a property becomes vacant, we assess the suitability of the property against applicants listed on the Register, in terms of desired location, affordability and property size. If you are offered a property, you will not be disadvantaged by a refusal. You will be included in each assessment while you are on the Register.
