Blackett is a suburb of Sydney, in the state of
New South Wales, Australia. Blackett is located
48 kilometres west of the Sydney central
business district, in the local government area
of the City of Blacktown and is part of the
Greater Western Sydney region.
Housing in Blackett is very heavily dominated
by public housing built throughout the 1960s
and 1970s, with large numbers of freestanding
fibro houses and extensive terrace-style
complexes . The houses are gradually
transferring to private ownership, and as this
continues, these government-built premises
are being replaced with privately built, modern
homes, similar to those being built in other
areas of Sydney.
The three most common forms of dwelling
were in decreasing order: a separate house; a
semi-detached, row or terrace house, or
townhouse; a flat, unit or apartment.
