In Australia, housing is completely cooked. It’s a big problem, and with a big build we can fix it.
Housing should be for all, not just the greedy few.
We're in a housing crisis
Right now, property prices are surging to record highs. A generation of renters have been locked out of home ownership, unable to save enough for a deposit, while continuing to face rising rents.
Decades of governments have rigged the private housing market with tax breaks that favour big developers and rich property speculators – our current housing system is worsening inequality.
Homelessness is on the rise, and today people face decade-long waits for access to affordable housing.
The housing market is broken. It’s time to think differently.
Housing is a human right.
Building one million new homes will ensure there is a home for all. These homes will be sustainable, accessible and affordable.
The Greens’ new innovative shared equity ownership scheme will make it easier for people to own their first home where they want to live for $300,000.
We’ll fund it by making billionaires pay more tax and scrapping handouts to property developers and speculators.
Our homes are for all.
All of the one million homes built will be accessible and adhere to Universal Design Principles.
This will ensure that these dwellings, including the public and community homes, shared ownership homes, and universal-access rentals, are made for all people.
Greens plan to build one million homes
A big problem needs a big solution
The Greens' plan is to build one million new publicly-owned, affordable, high-quality and sustainable homes.
Built over 20 years, we will clear public housing waiting lists, make housing more affordable, end homelessness, and ensure everyone has a roof over their head.
What will it take to make this a reality?
The Greens are just a few hundred votes from the balance of power. In the balance of power, we will fight for our plan to build a million new affordable, high-quality and sustainable homes.
With your support, we can make this happen by forcing the major parties to provide housing based on people’s needs, not on the profits of the banks, property developers and investors.
Why the Greens?
The Greens are the only party who do not take donations from the big banks, big developers and property tycoons.
Because we don’t take big donations, we can put people’s needs first.
Only the Greens fundamentally believe that the current situation of some people owning five, ten or more properties, getting huge tax handouts and locking other people out of the market is completely unsustainable.
Use your vote to put the Greens back in balance of power and we’ll push the next Government to go further and faster.
