On 11 March 2019, we were pleased to host an event with North Sydney Council to celebrate our 35-year partnership with the Council, and recognise yet another milestone – the transfer of 72 council owned social housing properties to Link Housing for management.
As Link Housing CEO, Andrew McAnulty says “Link was a small company that started in a cupboard virtually within the North Sydney Council chambers 35 years ago.”
Today our organisation manages around 4000 homes within Metropolitan Sydney, with the majority in its historic base of Northern Sydney. The transfer on Monday 11 March 2019, brings the number of homes managed on the Lower North Shore to 400.
Martin Ellis, Director, Community & Library Services at North Sydney Council, said, “We are delighted that Link Housing will take over the management of North Sydney’s community housing properties. We look forward to working together to address the growing issue of affordable housing while helping to ease the burden of housing stress and homelessness within our community.”
Thanks to our new tenants who attended the event, CEO of Metro Local Aboriginal Land Council, Nathan Moran, Director of Community & Library Services, Martin Ellis, FACS and the Link Housing team for their hard work in the lead up to the transfer.
