Land Release and Housing Supply New South Wales

Land Release and Housing supply NSW: New South Wales, Parliament, Legislative Assembly, Committee on Environment and Planning October 2018


It comes as no surprise that our planning system is as complex as our state. New South Wales is the engine room of the Australian economy. Sydney is the oldest European settlement and enjoys some of the most adverse geography on which to plan and build a city. Demand for land

and housing is high. Infrastructure is expensive and must be paid for. The needs of the community are diverse. Planning resources are stretched.

The terms of reference we considered cover only that section of planning which runs from releasing land for development to seeing houses built upon it. In examining this part of the planning system, however, our stakeholders informed us of a broad range of concerns

encompassing enabling legislation, strategic planning, how development charges are levied and upon whom, community building, and how we provide affordable houses whether for purchase or rent.
