Submission: Housing and Urban Development

Property Council recently submitted on the Government’s Policy Statement on Housing and Urban Development (GPS-HUD). While we supported a majority of the proposals, there are certain parts  of the Discussion Document that required further refinement. 

This included:

  • refinement of the vision and outcomes;

  • clarifying the Government’s actions to provide more public rental housing and address lack of housing supply;

  • further refinement of the Building System reform;
    addressing materials and skills shortages;

  • clarifying how NPS-UD interrelates with GPS-HUD;

  • greater Government contribution;

  • better coordination between local and central government;

  • better alignment between different work programmes;

  • development of the Population Strategy;
    better use of existing funding and financing tools;

  • establishment of competitive infrastructure fund;

  • and further refinement of the Implementation Strategy.
