Like nearby Rokeby, it was originally a public housing area in the 1970s; however, like the trend in many public housing areas in Hobart, much of the public housing stock has been sold to private owners. The suburb, along with adjacent suburb Rokeby, is considered by some as one of the lowest socio-economic suburbs in Hobart with a reputation for high crime rates; however, the suburb includes built-from-scratch private housing areas which are considered safer than the main Clarendon Vale area.
