No rental evictions during COVID-19 pandemic
The Victorian Government should ban evictions during the COVID-19 emergency to protect people in Prahran at risk of homelessness.
‘Over half of all people who live in Prahran rent their home.’
Prahran is also home to many retail, hospitality workers and artists. Many people from these industries have lost their livelihoods almost overnight and are facing an uncertain future.
In order to protect the very people that make Prahran an amazing place to live, the Victorian Government should place a moratorium on housing evictions for the duration of the COVID-19 public health emergency.
It is also very important that no one is disconnected from essential utilities such as electricity, water and the internet.
To get through this crisis, we all need to work together and find ways to ensure everyone has a roof over their head.
