AMBITIOUS NEW HOUSING PLAN WILL DELIVER MORE HOMES FOR QUEENSLANDERS ON THE SUNSHINE COAST
7th February 2024
The Miles Government is relentlessly focused on putting a roof over every Queenslanders’ head and tackling national cost of living pressures.
That’s why we have unveiled our plan to build one million homes in Queensland, including the largest investment in public and community housing in Queensland’s history.
We know that hundreds of thousands of people have moved to Queensland in the last three years and this is putting pressure on our housing market – both for owners and renters.
Homes for Queenslanders will deliver more homes faster, closer to where people work and live, while looking after people who are doing it tough.
This plan sets the bar high with a target of one million new homes in Queensland, including 53,500 social homes.
