Housing 2041

We want everyone to have a place to call home.

Housing 2041 is a whole-of-government approach that establishes a 20-year vision for the people of NSW. It sets a long-term strategy for better housing outcomes, focusing on supply, affordability, diversity and resilience.

The strategy approaches housing solutions holistically, looking at population patterns, economic, social and environmental effects, and other trends that affect the way we live.

It also acknowledges that people’s housing needs change, depending on life events, goals and capacity.

Collaboration is at the centre of the strategy and will be key to its success.

Housing solutions for everyone

The strategy will benefit people across the housing spectrum, from those temporarily without a home to those seeking housing that better suits their needs.

How we’re implementing Housing 2041

We are carrying out action plans to deliver secure, diverse, affordable and resilient housing.

We will continue to update our plans to achieve our 20-year vision. In June 2022, the NSW Government announced the $2.8-billion 2022–23 housing package to boost supply and delivery of homes across the state.

We are also developing a new action plan to set housing outcomes for the next 5 years.

The Place You Live survey

In 2021, the NSW Government commissioned The Place You Live survey (PDF, 2.9 MB). We asked a diverse range of NSW citizens how they feel about where they live, particularly their homes and neighbourhood amenities. The results have informed our work and the development of future housing responses.
