Eligibility

  1. The primary focus will be to provide housing for older people, ie 60 years of age and older.
  2. 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.
  3. 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.
  4. 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.
