Housing Affordability in Australia is just about the focus point for urban planners in the past few years. In particular, South East Queensland (SEQ) has experienced significant pressure as the interest in property and affordable dwellings increases and population growth in the location continues. The issue has come into the forefront in discussions for local governments in your community and there is a need that is real address the difficulty of housing affordability. The subject of affordability is complex and it is contributed to by a true number of factors such as the impost produced by Council processes, which can be the scope associated with HAF-T5 Project.
The requirement to reduce these imposts is a key driver for continued improvement in Council processes to streamline the approval of housing related development applications. There is a correlation that is direct the cost of housing and the time it will take for Council approval to be obtained for a development. It's the intention of this project to isolate the costs that are unnecessary, where possible, take them of through the assessment process.
