ECONOMISTS incite Governments to buy unsold apartments to boost stock of Affordable Housing
Following Welfare Agency reports …
-some 600,000 Australians lost their jobs in April 2020
A new report recommended …
-public funds in private unsold apartments could create affordable housing
-prior to the Pandemic more than 50,000 in the queue for social housing
-using our taxes to buy apartments could arrest house price falls; and restore construction (aside from high-rise?)
-a Central Housing Bank could bring 30,000 affordable homes across Australia’s 20 largest cities in its first year
-more than 200,000 approved dwellings in Sydney alone which aligns with the need for 200,000 social housing homes (ACOSS report)
WOULD these dwellings described as ‘Affordable Housing’ be for the rental market?
TO what standard have these apartments been built? Little seems to have changed for the better to date … even after the investigation by David Chandler ..
WHY has NSW INC struggled to implement the building industry reforms recommended by the Shergold-Weir Report over two years ago … and that of Michael Lambert?
