Increasing housing supply is essential for providing affordable and accessible homes for households of all income levels, ensuring that everyone has a place to call home.

Australians deserve an affordable roof over their head.

A lack of housing supply can lead to rising rents, homelessness, and overcrowding, which negatively impacts the well-being of individuals, families, and communities.

The building and construction industry in Australia is facing significant challenges, including rising costs of materials, labour shortages, and regulatory hurdles.

These challenges have resulted in delayed projects, increased construction costs, and reduced productivity, which can have a negative impact on the industry’s sustainability and the wider economy.

We need to tackle labour shortages and supply constraints to speed up the delivery of new homes, as current data shows we’re falling short of the one million home target under the Housing Accord.

Government regulations and red tape add significant time and expense to building projects, creating a major burden for the industry.

To improve housing affordability, all levels of government must work together to implement continuous land supply through land rezoning and planning, and taxes on the development and buying process should be reduced.
