$71.5 million dollar Sunshine Coast housing boost

12 June 2017 | The Honourable Mick de Brenni

The Sunshine Coast is set to share in a $1.8 billion housing investment by the Queensland Government, which will deliver more than 5,000 extra homes and thousands of jobs across the state in the next 10 years.

Minister for Housing and Public Works Mick de Brenni said the work, which comes under the Queensland Housing Strategy, was aimed at urgently addressing housing affordability in Queensland.

Mr de Brenni said that under the Strategy, 243 social housing dwellings were scheduled to be built in the Sunshine Coast, at a cost of $71.5 million.

“Our new ten year Housing Strategy will super-charge the building of affordable and social homes and drive 40 full time jobs each year on the Sunshine Coast,” Mr de Brenni said.

“The Palaszczuk Government will streamline processes so that the housing projects can get moving faster and Queensland builders and businesses can get involved quicker.

Mr de Brenni said the Palaszczuk Government would expand initiatives like Better Neighbourhoods Logan to renew communities and build new ones across the state.

“Those new and reinvigorated communities, through greater housing investment and updated planning, will have a better choice of diverse affordable housing with access to transport, education and everything Queenslanders need to live a full, rewarding life,” he said.

“It will help to forge stronger communities across the state over the next 10 years.”

Minister de Brenni said the Strategy funding represented an historic investment in Queensland housing.
