This is a step in the right direction but it’s not enough. Policy failures by state & federal govts have exacerbated our housing crisis. We are calling for urgent action – including a commitment to at least 20% affordable rental housing in major state govt renewal areas.

Through affordable housing levies, amended planning controls & discounted sale of our land to providers such as @citywestsydney, we have an additional 1008 affordable housing units in the pipeline – with 835 dwellings already delivered.

Housing stress for renters can only be relieved by an increasing supply of good quality affordable housing - costing less than 30 per cent of a household’s income.

Today’s news is not a surprise – we know the cost of housing is at crisis point across metropolitan Sydney. https://www.smh.com.au/business/the-economy/housing-stress-in-sydney-hits-a-new-high-20180730-p4zui1.html
