Housing

A safe and secure home is a basic human right, and I will lobby the State Government to protect and improve social housing. I will fight any attempt from the State Government to sell-off inner city public housing.

The Government must make proper budget allocations to maintain Housing NSW properties and I will work with Housing NSW to get prompt repairs and maintenance and action on regular safety audits. I will continue Clover Moore’s meetings with public tenants in Surry Hills, Chippendale, Millers Point and Woolloomooloo, bringing Housing NSW and Police to the meetings to address concerns.

I will advocate for all new major residential developments to include low cost and affordable housing, to accommodate the wide variety of workers and residents in the inner city.

    I think we should have a one house policy. Everybody is restricted to buy one house or apartment. This will stop the prices from rising for the next 10 years and in that time everybody’s salary will rise high enough to buy a house or apartment.

    Overseas people can buy a house or apartment as long as they are staying in them and sell them when they go back. They have to show their visa to get a “permit to buy” before they can buy.

    At the same time, we must also approve as many apartments as possible otherwise population increase will raise the prices.
