NSW Department of Planning and Environment

The housing system is complex, and although the NSW Government can have a significant impact through investment, policy, legislation and regulation, it cannot achieve the Housing 2041 vision alone. Collaboration is at the centre of the strategy and will be key to its successful delivery over the next 20 years. This includes collaboration with local government, community housing providers, the development industry, the finance industry and other private sector partners.

To this end, over the next 20 years, Housing 2041 will:

Enhance partnerships and cross-sector collaboration
Enhance partnerships and cross-sector collaboration by increasing availability of housing data, evidence and research, and by collaborating to test new ways of living
Increase support to those in most need
Increase support to those in most need by rejuvenating the social housing portfolio, supporting growth in the community housing sector and increasing the supply of affordable housing
Ensure more investment and support for housing that is adaptable to changing needs and environments
