The Liberal/National Coalition and Labor have neglected public housing for decades. They have assumed property developers and investors will provide housing stock and everyone will somehow afford their own home through the private market.  

Numerous schemes and subsidies have encouraged home ownership as a means to build wealth (for some) rather than a safe home for families.

Our Housing Plan

Housing is a basic human right. The Greens want everyone to have a home and know that with the right investment everyone can.

– We will invest properly in community and social housing and sustainable housing.

-We will support innovation and flexibility of building codes for example to support tiny homes projects.

– We will promote more affordable semi rural settlement by removing the legislative barriers to sustainable landshare projects. 

– We will introduce rent caps to help with affordability.

– We will provide additional protection for tenants from no fault evictions.
