You can buy units in the trust

Buy now and save!

Units in Environment House Trust are still available, at the price of $1500. The value of the units is tied to the Valuer Generalís valuation. With revaluation of the property 2007, the value of units have tripled from the original issue price. Now is a good time to invest in anticipation of the next revaluation. To purchase your unit/s please contact Ross Ulman [EHT Trustee] PO Box 75 Deloraine Tas, 7304 Australia. Phone (03) 63631230.

If you buy a unit in Environment House Trust now you can help TEA's PTR appeal

At your request when you purchase, the trustees will transfer the payment for units directly to the appeal funds to assist TEA's appeal against PTR 1698. Several unit holders have already done this to support Environment House, the PTR appeal and gained a share in a valuable asset all at the same time. What a great way to help. Donít forget that value of the units is tied to the government valuation. Revaluation this year will probably see that the value of the house and therefore the units will double. To purchase a unit please contact Ross Ulman PO Box 75 Deloraine Tas 7304 Ph 6368 1343

 

You can volunteer in renovations and maintenance

Update on renovations

In 2005, Environment House has had a new coat of paint to its external, west-facing wall. As well there have been several urgent repairs carried out to improve the usability of the house, including replacing the old toilet with a dual flush/low water use model. Thanks to the volunteers who did renovation work. Thanks also to the Meander Valley Council for a grant of $860 through its Community Grants scheme for a Redring Powerstream instant hot-water service. The unit is installed but unfortunately it is not yet providing hot water as the house needs some new wiring to bring it from the 19th century to the 21st! Hopefully this will be done in the near future. Room 2 is still leased by our tenant, Mary Jane Vaughan Homeopathy. We now have a second room ready for rental and hope to have it occupied by early in the New Year. The funds raised by renting one room help keep The Environment Association afloat by covering rates and insurance. Rental from a second room will assist in TEA's campaigns and outreach.

During 2007-08 we hope to produce a plan for the redevelopment of the house to provide more space, solar heating, a catering standard kitchen, solar electricity [grid interactive] and composting toilets. The solar upgrade could be hastened with Commonwealth Government rebate, and the panels would be installed on the back of the roof so as to use the northern sun and consequently will not intrude on the heritage street faÁade. What a show place for environmental care it will be! We hope this process will start at the next AGM with an exciting guest speaker.
