Social housing development activity 2018-20 versus 2021-24

COVID-19Housing & homelessness

This graph shows the projected national increase in social housing development over the next three years is also in prospect for most jurisdictions. Nevertheless, 61% of all projected commencements over the period will be in just two states, Victoria and Queensland.  Despite being the nation’s largest state, NSW will make only a very modest contribution to the Australia-wide total.

However, ignoring the highly uneven distribution of this activity across the country, the additional social housing construction projected for delivery ‘as a result of the pandemic’ is substantial.
