Public Housing Maintenance Waitlist Blowout

South West Coast MP Roma Britnell has expressed alarm at the unacceptable waiting times that South West Coast public housing residents are forced to endure for basic repairs and maintenance.

Some South West Coast public housing residents are experiencing wait times of up to two years for mould to be removed or for heaters to be repaired. 

“The waiting times for basic repairs and maintenance are completely unacceptable. No one should have to live in a mouldy or cold home, let alone wait for up to two years for these issues to be addressed” Ms Britnell said.

“The Andrews Labor Government needs to step up and provide the necessary resources to address the maintenance backlog and ensure that public housing residents in South West Coast have access to safe and well-maintained homes” Ms Britnell stated.
