Cost of Living

In reply to the Hon. J.S. LEE (16 June 2022).

The Hon. C.M. SCRIVEN (Minister for Primary Industries and Regional Development, Minister for Forest Industries): The Minister for Housing and Urban Development has advised:

Relevant ministers and executives from the South Australian Housing Authority and Department of Human Services along with Minister Champion and Renewal SA met with councils and groups in the South-East recently at the first community cabinet. This helped to understand the unique and up to date issues facing each of the individual council areas and towns. The issues to each area are unique. Some of the issues are access to housing, crisis accommodation and others are key worker housing for employment industries. We have since been in contact with councils and will be working with them on what is needed and what can be done in partnership.
