Hon Gabrielle Upton MP - Discussion paper - Have your say on the future of housing in NSW

Member for Vaucluse, Gabrielle Upton announced that the NSW Government is

calling on the community to help develop the first comprehensive long-term housing

strategy for the State.

A discussion paper has been released which includes a proposed vision for housing

in NSW, the strategic context in which the housing strategy will be delivered,

proposed preliminary directions and discussion questions to target feedback.

Ms Upton said, “We also want residents to share their feedback and ideas –

community consultation will play a vital role in developing the strategy.

“Housing can play a role in our State’s economic recovery by having the right

policies and support in place for those who need it the most.”

NSW Minister for Housing, Melinda Pavey said the discussion paper will help inform

the development of a 20-year whole-of-government housing strategy that addresses

everything from homelessness to home ownership.

“This strategy is another example of the NSW Government working to provide

certainty for housing providers and communities feeling the strain from the impacts

of COVID-19 to their health, employment and housing stability.

Planning and Public Spaces Minister Rob Stokes said the development of a NSW

Housing Strategy demonstrates the Government’s commitment to ensuring everyone

in the community has a safe, well-connected place to live no matter their


“The housing needs of our community are becoming more diverse so we need a

variety of housing connected to transport, employment and public spaces that make

for great places to live, work and play,” Mr Stokes said.
