The Donnybrook-Balingup Aged Homes Committee identified a need to provide affordable housing for aged pensioners in our community to cater for independent living on a limited income. The committee steered the development of this housing project which, over time, saw the development of two unit complexes.
Minninup Cottages, built in stages commencing in 1979, is a complex of 12 one-bedroom units located at 122 South Western Highway, Donnybrook and are within walking distance of the local shops and amenities.
Langley Villas, built in stages commencing in 1986, is a complex of 6 two-bedroom units and 3 one-bedroom units. The units are located at 144 South Western Highway, Donnybrook.
The units are an open-plan layout and each has its own private courtyard as well as lovely communal gardens.
The Shire of Donnybrook-Balingup administers the tenancy arrangements and coordinates the general maintenance of the units.
To be considered eligible:
- You must be in receipt of a pension from Centrelink or Veterans Affairs; and
