The Committee on Community Services is conducting an inquiry looking at options to improve access to existing and alternate accommodation to address the social housing shortage.
That the Committee inquire into and report on options to improve access to existing and alternate accommodation in order to help address the social housing shortage in NSW, with particular reference to:
a) options to better support 'meanwhile use' (temporary supportive accommodation), and the current major planning barriers to ‘meanwhile use’;
b) options to improve access to existing accommodation to provide community housing;
c) options for crisis, key-worker and other short term accommodation models;
d) barriers to additional supply across NSW, including for smaller non-CHP housing providers;
e) support for and accountability of registered community housing providers.
