City West Housing Pty Ltd (CWH) was established in 1994 with a charter to provide long term secure Affordable Housing for rent in Ultimo/Pyrmont to people on low to moderate incomes. As a result of its initial success CWH was invited to expand its operations to the Green Square area of South Sydney and then in 2009 through changes to the local planning instruments undertook a further expansion of its boundaries to encompass the whole of the City of Sydney local government area.
The expanded boundaries enables the Company to take advantage of a number of opportunities in this wider area to purchase land and develop additional and much needed affordable rental housing in the inner city which will build on the current 547 properties developed, owned, maintained and managed by the company.
In 2009 CWH became registered as a Class 1 Community housing provider.
Our mission is to be an independent and accountable housing organisation providing an efficient and effective, affordable and appropriate rental housing service for very low, low and moderate income earners.
