    Kingy, it depends on each LGA or the council. usually I send email to them regarding the House location. Who knows' you can also gain more additional information for the future plan of the houso as well.

    Where are you going to buy ?

    For example, I've been asking some people opinion in buying properties in Riverstone NSW, luckilly some experts here mentioned that it is not a good choice due to plenty of Housing Commission nearby.

    Just ring NSW Housing who are based in Redfern or call the Cop shop at Redfern & tell them the address & they can tell you if it's near housing commission.

    Agree with this. Call the department of housing they will help you and can give you streets where they have properties (but not street numbers).

    Would not call the cops. Only call cops for crimes, otherwise you're taking their time away from catching crooks.

    Redfern is a place where - when you stop at a traffic light - you'll see a sign telling you to keep the car doors locked so that nobody can open your passenger door, grab your bag and run away.

    Waterloo is a bit better but there are some pockets that you'd want to avoid. You can do a 'walk' in Google maps street view. If you know what Housing NSW buildings look like you'd be able to spot them. There are a few buildings that you can spot from a few kilometres distance. No, they won't look like Meriton developments. :D

    Alexandria doesn't have as many public housing buildings, it is an old industrial area with lots of warehouses that are being rapidly replaced with residential complexes (a lot of them high rise), as well as shopping centres and show rooms.

    Use googlemaps street view and look for lounges on the front porch. :eek:

    Just kidding.

    If you know someone with access to RP data you can look them up.

    I no longer have access but when I did I always looked to see how many HC houses were near a property I was considering.

    The operator in Walgett, Waratah, Wentworth or Woodenbong will have no idea where Redfern or Waterloo are located.

    People's perception that Redfern is very inferior to Waterloo in regards HC stock, needs to change.

    Google map tells us that anything after Philips Rd is Waterloo.

    See attached rpdata generated data I did for Redfern and Waterloo.

    Most of Redfern HC stock are scattered in pockets of east of Elizabeth St
    Most of Waterloo HC stocks are scattered all pockets and not contained in certain pockets

    Aboriginal Housing stock in west of Redfern, Eveleigh St etc are a separate discussion to HC.
