There is a lot of information about Labor's plan that isn’t available yet. We’ve put this section together based on public announcements, information gathered by community members, and experiences from previous redevelopments of this kind.
See below the fold for information.

- Will there be more public transport to accommodate the increase in density?
- What will be the impact on neighbourhood amenity for remaining residents?
- When will residents need to leave their homes?
- What will happen to residents whose homes are demolished?
- Will new housing be the same size as the housing it replaces?

Public housing residents and their supporters are already taking action in their neighbourhoods to stand up for public housing.
The Public Housing Defence Network is a coalition of residents, supporters and community groups pushing for more public housing, not sell-offs. Weekly coordination meetings happen at 6:30pm on Monday nights at North Carlton Railway House, 20 Solly Ave, North Carlton. All welcome. (Note: meeting time moved from Monday 22/1/18 to Tuesday 23/1/18)
