The Tasmanian Division of the Property Council of Australia (‘the Property Council’) welcomes the opportunity to respond to the Legislative Council’s Select Committee into Affordable Housing.
For the purpose of this submission, the affordable housing issue has been divided into two sections:
1. The issue of where responsibility for Social Housing, other wise known as public housing rests; and
2. Housing affordability – the barriers which impede the ability for Tasmanians, particularly Generation Y Tasmanians, to be able to buy into the housing market.
