The Millers Point and The Rocks and Woolloomooloo communities are part of a broader network of pubic and social housing communities in NSW.
In 2014 the State Government announced the sale of Waterloo Estate. The majority are over 60 years old and women. The fight is about the future of public (also called social) housing. There has been some limited success ensuring tenants are re-homed in re-developed estates.
Here are some links to communities fighting sell-offs around NSW.
