There continues to be an insufficient supply of housing to accommodate Australia’s growing population. There are significant barriers that continue to prevent the housing industry from supplying enough homes to meet demand. As a consequence, the cost of housing in Australia is higher than it needs to be.
A well housed population is more productive, cohesive and healthy.
Setting Australia on a path towards a meaningful and sustainable improvement in housing affordability is a challenge. Real reform will require a coordinated approach by all levels of government, utilising national cabinet to ensure existing and future intergovernmental agreements target funding to genuine outcomes that support housing supply and improve housing affordability.
There is a role for the Australian Government to set a pathway that will lead to increases in housing supply and reductions in the cost of new housing.
Commit to appointing a Federal Minister for Housing Supply within Cabinet.
Commit to making the necessary investment to achieve the objectives and commitments of the National Housing and Homelessness Agreement across public and private housing supply.
Establish a National Federation Reform Taskforce for Housing Supply dedicated to developing a National Housing and Land Supply Strategy.
