The Communities Plus projects aims to boost social housing at Ivanhoe by increasing the number of social housing dwellings – doubling the existing 259. 556 new social housing dwellings, at least 128 new affordable housing dwellings, and about 1,900 private dwellings will be constructed on the eight hectare site at Ivanhoe.

A second Communities Plus Neighbourhood Renewal package is also in the works and the NSW Government will be presenting the package through an Expression of Interest to Community Housing Providers as well as to small to medium sized private developers. An estimated 790 new private as well as social and affordable housing will be delivered on ten sites.
