New housing land released in Kununnurra

Lands Minister Brendon Grylls has continued his efforts to make residential land affordable in the state's north, with the release of six grouped housing lots in Kununurra.

The lots will be sold by design tender to developers, with the potential for 39 dwellings to be created at LandCorp's Coolibah estate in Kununurra.

Mr Grylls said the release of the lots was an important part of the state government's long term affordable housing strategy for the north.

""The Government has placed considerable emphasis on making sure we can provide land to meet the growing needs of Kununurra and the Ord Expansion Project and East Kimberley Development Package," Mr Grylls said.

"These lots are the latest in a program of land releases to meet demand and give people the opportunity to buy affordable land.

"The lots are zoned medium density, which will provide new housing alternatives for Kununurra residents in the town centre."

The Minister said the release would result in a quality development outcome and he anticipated strong demand.

"Submissions will be judged on architectural response, climate-sensitive design and provision of quality streetscapes and landscaping," he said.

"We're looking to work together with builders to encourage construction of more climate-sensitive and energy-efficient homes."

Tenders close on February 24.
