Mandating social housing in new high density developments is key to tackling the homelessness crisis, Homelessness NSW says. CEO Dom Rowe says: “We welcome any moves that require social and affordable housing in high density developments near existing transport and services.
“We will not be able to build our way out of the worst homelessness crisis in a generation without ensuring that 10 per cent of dwellings are social housing by 2050.
“The NSW government will force developers to include affordable and social housing in all high-density apartment developments built around priority public transport precincts in a bid to ease the housing crisis for low-income earners and essential workers.”
