Contrary to promises made in the recent NSW election, the new ALP Government continues to force out people from their homes in Glebe in inner Sydney.
Public Housing tenants are experiencing the same treatment in the Barak Beacon Estate in Port Melbourne under the Andrews Government.
The State Governments are re-developing inner areas by subbing out former purpose built public housing to developers who then build higher density flats in the less regulated social housing sphere.
The only problem is that there are public housing tenants who still need these relatively new buildings to continue to be their home.
