· $21.5 million: 1-9 Anderson Avenue, Liverpool, containing 63 apartments, including 34 for affordable rental housing);

Liverpool myor Wendy Waller said the approved developments will deliver 180 apartments for affordable rental housing.
“Housing affordability for many in our city has been eroded by static incomes, increasing living costs and the general uncertain economic environment,” she said.
“We are highly aware that Liverpool is one of the fastest-growing parts of Australia and we are planning to meet the demands of that growth.
“But we are also very mindful that no-one in our community gets left behind,” she said.
