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.
