On June 1, the NSW Government announced a comprehensive new package of measures designed to meet the housing needs of NSW communities now and into the future. These policies consider the state’s growing population and the need to ensure housing development occurs close to essential infrastructure such as transport and schools.

 

Our approach addresses housing supply based on the right range of housing in the right areas. We’re speeding up approvals so new homes hit the market sooner. We’re bringing forward funding for vital infrastructure to support these developments to ensure the community has access to jobs and services.

 

Effective planning also includes preserving the local character of our neighbourhoods and enhancing our open spaces. Our housing policies include funding for improving neighbourhoods and upgrading parklands and open areas.

 

We want to see more people have the opportunity to own their own home through measures that address the difficulty first home buyers face in entering the market.

 

These measures will deliver outcomes for current and future generations.
