Plan for 490 new homes revealed in Tasmania

The Property Council of Australia welcomes State Labor’s Plan to build 490 new homes should they be elected to government.

Tasmanian Division Executive Director Brian Wightman said that it was a positive step to see Labor recognise the importance of housing supply.

“Following Tuesday’s State Government commitment to implement statutory timeframes for all aspects of the housing approval process, it is pleasing that the Labor Opposition has also placed increasing housing supply as a high priority.

“The Property Council has championed the reforms required to improve housing supply for several years. Initiatives which stimulate the property market; house more Tasmanians; and create more jobs and apprenticeships is very positive,” he said.
