Liberal State Council Push to Force Elderly Out of Homes

Elderly residents should not be forced to give up their homes to make way for units if a policy proposal to be discussed at next week's Liberal State Council gains momentum, community housing advocates say.

The state motion, to be brought before the council next weekend, suggests older residents who occupy large blocks of land should subdivide their large blocks in exchange for a new unit within their original piece of land.

Residents could be forced from their homes to live in a unit a fraction of the size, on their old block of land, under the motion.
