Building a More Sustainable Housing System
The Tasmanian Government is investing record amounts in the supply of social and affordable housing and homelessness initiatives.
More must be done to make comprehensive change and build a sustainable housing system. This means making the most of all the opportunities available to the State Government to influence the housing market through regulatory systems, strategic land use planning, policies, taxes, subsidies, and capital investment.
We are looking for practical solutions on the critical market levers such as:
- population growth and settlement planning
- ageing and shifts in household composition
- land availability
- the interface between public and private markets
- approvals and permitting
- sustainable housing - energy and water efficiency
- construction workforce availability
- alignment of essential social and economic infrastructure.

How to have your say
The Tasmanian Housing Strategy will be developed in collaboration with key stakeholders and the Tasmanian community.
Housing is important to everyone and everyone is invited to have their say on a sustainable housing market for all Tasmanians.
For the first time we are bringing together experts in Government, research, community, business and construction to provide advice on all the housing market levers.
