Affordable Housing Joint Letter

The Urban Development Institute of Australia, NSW (UDIA) in partnership with our members and
Regulated Community Housing Providers (CHPs) City West Housing, St George Community Housing,
Pacific Link Housing, Housing Trust and Link Wentworth commends the NSW Government on
its commitment to tackle our growing housing crisis and increase the supply of social, affordable
and market housing in NSW.

In this regard, we were encouraged by government’s announcement in June this year to increase the affordable housing bonus under the Housing SEPP to incentivise private industry to deliver affordable housing at no cost to government or the CHP sector. There is however continued concern that the Draft Policy now the subject of targeted consultation will fail to deliver on this stated ambition and be a missed opportunity.
