Submission to the Parliamentary Inquiry into Housing Affordability and Supply in Australia
National Shelter welcomes the opportunity to make a submission to the Inquiry into housing affordability and supply in Australia. As discussed in the Submission, housing affordability and supply are affected by many factors including but not limited to the following: population size and growth rate, urban spread and density, planning regimes, developer control of land supply and release, and urban, regional, and rural infrastructure disparities.
