Lismore Housing Expo: Your guide to housing and recovery
Published on 16 October 2023
The current housing crisis is not just a statistic or a news headline, it's a current reality that affects countless individuals and families in Lismore and beyond. As we grapple with soaring prices, limited availability and the stress of securing a stable place to call home, it's crucial we take steps to address this issue.
In response to this crisis, Lismore City Council has developed the Lismore Housing Expo, demonstrating Council's commitment to providing access to the knowledge and resources needed to find a safe and secure place to live.
Lismore City Mayor Steve Krieg said the Lismore Housing Expo is an important event not only for Lismore’s recovery but also for the City’s future.
"The Expo will offer something to cater to the needs of everyone currently exploring housing options. Navigating the available options and processes can sometimes be challenging, but having all this information along with expert guidance in one location is a valuable opportunity for our community," he said.
Stallholders will showcase the wide array of services and resources available to help people through the challenges of the current housing situation. From tiny homes and modular homes to house removals, house raising, the two rooms project and recovery support services.
Attendees can connect with experts on housing grants, development applications, financial counselling or legal advice, these free 30-minute sessions run between 10am and 2pm and are open to all attendees.
Enjoy complimentary food, coffee and kids' activities throughout the day. Plus, enter the lucky door draw for a chance to win one of three Loving Local Gift cards.
Access this important information at the Lismore Housing Expo on Saturday, 11 November, from 10am to 2pm at the South Lismore Bowling Club. For more details visit Council's website at www.lismore.nsw.gov.au or contact Council on 6625 0500.
