The cottages are fully self-contained with their own individual garden area. Tenants are responsible for all outgoings i.e. electricity, water and sewerage, telephone rental, and contents insurance.
The cottages provide the opportunity for residents to retain their independence without the inconvienence of maintaining a proprety or the uncertainty of a private rental market.
Cottages are within walking distance to all services including post offices, supermarkets, banks, chemists, doctors and libraries.
The cottages are available to eligible residents aged 55 years and over.
Cottages are rented under the Retirement Villages Act 2004. Residents will be leasing premises and living in a 'retirement village' for persons and their spouses, one of whom at least is required to pay an ingoing contribution.
Applications for cottages are assessed by a selection committee when a vacancy arises.
Enquiries from those wishing additional information on gaining access to a unit would be welcomed by contacting the Council's Senior Health Officer on 6264 0300.
