Queensland housing summit to ‘lead to action’

Fraser Barton and Marty Silk report in the Canberra Times (13.9.22) on Premier Annastacia Palaszczuk’s announcement of a housing summit to address Queensland’s growing housing and rental affordability crisis.

‘The Queensland premier has promised a state housing summit next month will produce a set of “key actions” to ease the ongoing crisis.

‘The summit comes almost a year after it was first proposed by social services, charities, local governments, property and employer groups and construction companies. Round-table talks to plan for the gathering are due to be held on Friday.

‘Premier Annastacia Palaszczuk says the summit will consider land supplies and social housing, but all options are on the table.

‘… There is a severe shortage of homes in Queensland, with 27,437 households on the waiting list for government housing, and tight private rental vacancy rates.’
