Queensland Housing Strategy

We are working on a 10-year Housing Strategy to help build better futures for all Queenslanders.

The new Housing Strategy will support our aims to provide safe, secure and affordable housing options for all Queenslanders. The Housing Strategy will also guide us in providing quality housing and homelessness assistance services into the future.

Consultation discussion paper

In March 2016, we released the Working together for better housing and sustainable communities (PDF, 2.5MB) discussion paper, and kicked off a comprehensive state-wide community engagement and public consultation. We talked with communities and stakeholders across the state through face-to-face engagement sessions. We also collected your feedback through written submissions and online surveys.

Consultation summary

In December 2016, we released the Housing Strategy Consultation Summary 2016 (PDF, 2MB). The summary captures feedback, insight and ideas from more than 1,870 Queenslanders interested in improving housing outcomes and building strong communities.

Who we consulted with

Young people, older people, families and people with a disability from across the state shared their housing experiences.

Academics, peak and representative bodies provided their insight and feedback. We also received written submissions from individuals, community groups, industry organisations, businesses and not-for-profit groups.
