Housing package targets and programs

The NSW Housing Package outlines the government’s commitment to actively managing the housing supply pipeline. Several new initiatives are underway across each stage of the pipeline to support the delivery of 4 new targets. As acknowledged recently by the Productivity Commission, such targets play an important role in demonstrating state-level commitments to new housing supply.

Stage Target Programs
Zoning 100,000 dwellings unlocked by 2023–24 (including 70,000 dwellings from state-led rezoning approvals and 30,000 dwellings from council-led rezoning approvals)
Infrastructure servicing 150,000 dwellings supported by departmental infrastructure programs by 2025–26 (progress against this target will be reported every 6 months)
Development approval 32,500 dwellings unlocked by 2023–24 (from state-significant and regionally significant development approvals)
Housing supply in regional NSW 127,000 dwellings delivered in regional NSW by 2031–32 (progress against this target will be reported annually)
