I am in your electorate (?) and I would like the opportunity to meet with you to discuss housing in the inner west.
I am an architect and a member of Cohousing Australia.
In that capacity I am working to develop new housing models to help create more environmentally, socially and economically sustainable and resilient housing options.
There are some great projects in Melbourne to illustrate precedence in this area such as The Commons by Breathe Architecture and Murundaka a community in Heidelberg Heights but we need more projects like these and we need more support across many sectors to create disruptive change.
Only by doing this will it be possible to change the status quo of large lonely McMansions, urban sprawl, speculation, developer driven apartment projects that fail to meet the diversity of the market or the social and environmental needs of our community. Homelessness and housing affordability, supported housing for the disabled and/or elderly, adequate provision of social housing which includes not just the physical "housing" bit but also the social "community" bit, are all issues we must start to address seriously.
I would like to meet with you to discuss how we could work together in this space.
