- The primary focus will be to provide housing for older people, ie 60 years of age and older.
- The secondary focus will be to accept tenants between the ages of 50 and 60 years with preference in this group being extended to those people who are government income-tested and/or who have special needs.
- Generally persons under the age of 50 will not be considered as tenants unless there is a case for "special needs" as per 2) above.
- To be eligible for consideration, applicants must not have more than $150,000 in property, in the bank or in investments. The equity in family trusts will be taken into consideration when assessing eligibility.
Note 1: The rationale for 3) above is that the disparity in ages may not be compatible to a harmonious village environment where the majority of the residents will be within similar age brackets, ie 60 years+.
Note 2: Should an urgent need arise and the applicant does not meet the eligibility criteria above, then applicants may be screened by a committee of Council/elected representative/s with advice from a senior staff member. Applicants may be required to attend an interview with the committee.
