Aboriginal Housing Company isn’t ‘bringing people together’ | Altmedia

The Redfern Indigenous community has denied support for the Pemulwuy Project at The Block, despite such claims from the Aboriginal Housing Company (AHC).The AHC recently lodged an application to the Department of Planning to increase student accommodation. To support the increase from 154 to 500 students, the building will need to be ten stories higher than the original plan.Nathan Moran, the CEO of the Metropolitan Local Aboriginal Land Council (MLALC), said it’s a big lie for the AHC to promote they have support from the Aboriginal community of Redfern.“We are the Aboriginal community of Redfern, the Metropolitan Local Aboriginal Land Council. Whether the Aboriginal Housing Company likes that or not, we are the authority legislated to speak and we have never supported this development,” he said.Mr Moran said the AHC didn’t consult the MLALC in regards to the modifications.“I’m quite shocked that we have not even had the courtesy of a conversation from the housing company,” he said.
