Policy & Advocacy

We are city-shapers.


2023 Policy Agenda

The UDIA NSW Housing Crisis Action Plan will guide UDIA’s forthcoming policy, research and advocacy as our standing advocacy document. The Plan brings forth 28 recommendations, emphasising that the deep nature of the current housing crisis needs a multitude of levers to be pulled in order to set NSW back on the right path, and deliver the much needed housing to satisfy our growing population, and meet our Federal housing targets.

Advocacy Campaign

The 2023 NSW State Election prompted UDIA to create our Election Campaign Manifesto – Let’s Tackle the Housing Shortage in NSW – which focuses on 12 realistic solutions across 5 priority areas in our Industry that we believe should be prioritised by the incoming NSW Government. The priorities, and solutions, all centre on addressing the acute housing shortage and affordability crisis that is rife across the state.

Representing the Regions

The regions are an important part of UDIA NSW’s advocacy and membership. We have a strong presence in the regions, with local Chapters operating in the Hunter, Central Coast, Western Sydney, Illawarra and Shoalhaven.
