Fighting for fair

A plan to fix housing affordability

Everyone deserves a safe and secure place to call home.

While Labor is content to tinker around the edges, the Greens have the courage to tackle the real drivers of housing unaffordability.

  • Fixing the rigged tax system
  • Controlling rents
  • 30% minimum affordable housing in big new developments
  • Minimum standards for rental properties

We all need a home, but our housing system isn’t working for us. For years the old parties have prioritised private developers and super wealthy investors over ordinary people who just want a safe, secure place to live.

The Greens have a plan to fix the rigged housing system:

  • Removing unfair tax breaks from super wealthy investors will level the playing field for people who want to buy their first home.

  • Rent controls will stop rental prices ballooning beyond inflation.

  • Mandatory affordable housing in new large developments will ensure we put people, not property developers, first.

  • Minimum rental standards will ensure everyone has a safe, warm and energy efficient place to live.
