Katherine-Anne Scarfo started this petition to Blacktown City Council

There is a current proposal to create a new 21 room community living project at 1 Walters Road, Blacktown called "Parkside Residences". The vision for Parkside Residences is to provide affordable, fully self contained rooms for rental with their own kitchens, bathrooms and balconies. The project will also include a range of common living areas for residents including a large communal lounge room, laundry, computer room and private central courtyard.

There is a major need for more affordable housing in Blacktown and Parkside Residences is aiming to deliver this cheaper form of housing whilst doing so in a high quality designed complex which focusses on creating a community living atmosphere for the residents.

The Parkside Residences will have a strict Plan of Management to ensure that all guests respect each other and their neighbours. There will be an on-site building manager who will seek to create a friendly environment for all of the residents.

Many of the new residential apartment projects which are being built in Blacktown are not affordable in terms of the apartment sale prices or the rents which are being asked. Furthermore, many of these projects are actually demolishing older cheap houses and replacing them with upmarket expensive apartments which is reducing the amount of affordable housing in the area.

Parkside Residences is aiming to create high quality designed rooms with a focus on community living whilst also ensuring the cost of rent is affordable. As a community, we should be doing all that we can to increase the amount of new affordable housing so that those in need are not forced into sub-standard accommodation.

Please register your support for the Parkside Residences.
