Improving housing affordability in NSW

Housing affordability is an important issue for people in NSW. The NSW Government is acting to improve housing affordability across the state, particularly in Sydney where the challenge is the greatest.

Landcom is focused towards this goal and is taking a lead in improving the supply, diversity and affordability of new housing in Sydney and NSW.

Boosting the supply, diversity and affordability of housing

To help address housing supply, diversity and affordability issues we undertake strategic projects in Sydney and other parts of the state, demonstrating different potential housing solutions.

New housing includes a mix of types, tenures and price points for a range of households including Affordable Housing to rent managed by Community Housing Providers and to buy by first home buyers.

We also provide practical advice to Government on policy initiatives, and the cost impact of these to the private sector.

Our objectives

1. Make it easier for people to own their own home

Home ownership is an important aspiration for Australians. Innovations in design, delivery and financing may give people access to new options. 

2. Demonstrate new housing typologies to provide a greater choice of homes

Changing demographics and household structures mean we need a greater mix of home types now and in the future. 

3. Deliver strategic projects across NSW

Sometimes Landcom’s will be required to help where development is not proceeding as planned or assistance is required to create new development opportunities. 

Delivery in Partnership, Innovation in design, finance and planning

Landcom never works alone.

We’re proud to work with a range of other organisations to help deliver sustainable developments that improve housing supply, diversity and affordability to the people of NSW.

Our commitment

We’re committed to support housing innovation by pursuing partnerships, tools and opportunities which relate to housing diversity and affordability.
