Housing 2041 sets a long-term vision and objectives for better housing outcomes across NSW - housing in the right locations, housing that suits diverse needs and housing that feels like home. It is centered around the four inter-related pillars of housing supply, affordability, diversity and resilience.
The strategy will benefit people across the housing spectrum, from those temporarily without a home to those seeking housing that better suits their needs. Housing 2041 approaches housing solutions holistically, looking at population patterns, economic and environmental effects, and other trends that affect the way we live. The strategy also acknowledges that people and households move back and forth along the housing spectrum depending on life events, aspirations and capacity.

The strategy and action plan are currently supported by the following initiatives:
During 2021, the Department commissioned The Place You Live survey. The survey provides insights into a diverse cross-section of NSW citizens, focusing on their values relating to where they live, particularly their homes and their local neighbourhood amenities. The results from this survey (PDF, 2.9 MB) will help inform the Housing Strategy’s action plans to provide better housing outcomes that meet the diverse and changing needs of the people of NSW.
