Inquiry into housing affordability and supply in Australia

The Federal Standing Committee on Tax and Revenue, chaired by Mr Jason Falinski MP, is inquiring into and reporting on the contribution of tax and regulation on housing affordability and supply in Australia.

Inquiry submissions closed on Monday, 13 September and Shelter WA was pleased to work with National Shelter and the Community Housing Industry Association (CHIA) on their submission.

Severe Constraints

Our input focussed on parts of the housing system where affordability issues are most acute and supply is most severely constrained i.e., social and affordable rental housing and outlines supply and demand positions, the benefits to governments from investing in social and affordable housing and offer solutions that can be implemented and/or facilitated by the Commonwealth Government.
