Housing affordability and ‘liveable cities’ … back in 2017

THIS is what CAAN had to say about this discussion more than 2 years ago in 2017!

‘Whose interests do you suppose CEDA represensts on Housing Affordability and Liveable Cities?’… hmm?

What does CEDA stand for?

A. COMMITTEE FOR ECONOMIC DEVELOPMENT OF AUSTRALIA

CEDA promoted a plan that included dropping stamp duty and racking everyone with an annual land tax … yet another new fat tax!

What, to make it easier for foreign buyers ?

JA LNP Chair of a Committee concerning this … talks about VALUE CAPTURE … another TAX!

FFS Folks!

IN 2019 … The Housing Ponzi was revealed for what it is Big Time … with the cracking up and sinking of some apartment developments resulting in evacuations … the Opal Tower Fail followed by Mascot Towers … and others damaged/plagued by water ingress, damp and mould, inadequate fire protection, combustible cladding and more!

Demand driven pressures and supply constraints could plague Australia’s housing market for the next 40 years, making the great Australian dream of owning a home perhaps just that — a dream.

That’s according to a new housing report out this morning from CEDA which asks the question, “Is it time to let go of the Great Australian Dream?”.

The report comes as the House of Representative Committee on Cities and Infrastructure holds hearings today in Melbourne looking at ‘liveability’ and planning issues in what is Australia’s fastest growing city.

Guests

John Alexander Member for Bennelong; Chair of House of Representatives Standing Committee on Infrastructure, Transport and Cities.
