Why not move to the bush?
Should the scheme to encourage Sydneysiders to make a tree or sea change be scrapped. Two Murrays question why fewer than 700 grants have given and what's stopping people moving to the bush.
The relocation grants were originally offered to those who sold their metropolitan home - which included Sydney, the Central Coast, Newcastle, Wollongong and the Blue Mountains - and bought an existing home in the country for up to $600,000.
However, in December last year the government was forced to extend the program because of lack of interest, and the grants were also offered to those who wanted to build their own homes.
Of the people who took up the grant, 210 moved not from Sydney, but from Newcastle, the Illawarra, Central Coast and Blue Mountains, the information obtained by the opposition showed.
The government had hoped 10,000 people would take up the grants over the four-year life of the program.
