Submission on the NSW Government’s social housing discussion paper
Social housing in NSW: A discussion paper for input and comment was released late last year by the NSW Government. It proposes three pillars to underpin the future direction of public and community housing and asks one broad question relating to each pillar.
But the discussion paper is fundamentally flawed in three ways:
- It fails to draw on the evidence and recommendations that are already available, and which the Government should act on immediately.
- It takes a narrow focus on social housing without recognising the need for broader reforms and improvements in housing policy.
- It relies on presumptions about the social housing system that will exacerbate its problems.
