The Queensland Government is investing $1.8B to build over 5,000 New Homes

The Queensland Housing Strategy 2017-2027 is a 10-year framework driving key reforms and
targeted investment across the housing continuum. It redefines how the Queensland Government will deliver housing to support urban renewal, generate new jobs, provide affordable housing and drive innovative housing design that responds to contemporary housing needs. The QLD government is investing $1.6 billion to deliver more social and affordable housing over the next 10 years, including:

  • 600 Jobs Per Year
  • 2,972 New Social Homes
  • 1,034 New Affordable Homes
  • Total 5,000 New Homes

For the Brisbane Regional Area this means:

  • $220M Investment
  • 684 New Social Homes
  • 125 Full Times Jobs Per Year

Developers will have to look further into to the proposed introduction inclusionary requirements for new dwellings on state land (5-25% for social and affordable).
