Homes for Queenslanders plan launched

The Queensland Government has launched Homes for Queenslanders, a plan to deliver one million new homes by 2046. Focusing on a whole-of-system approach to improve the current planning system, business will benefit through:

  • Fast-tracked updates to local council plans to deliver more housing.
  • New Distinctly Queensland housing design standards that simplify approvals and shorten building times.
  • Streamlined priority projects via a new State Facilitated Development process.
  • Funding for Queensland’s construction workforce.

The release of this plan will provide an initial funding uplift of an additional $3 billion. Homes for Queenslanders will deliver a generation’s worth of secure construction jobs and ensure Queenslanders can afford to live and work in the community that they love.
