On a very positive side, our incoming premier Gladys Berejiklian, has nominated affordable housing as one of her top three priorities. We are very excited about the possibilities here and hope that our Federal government also will bite the bullet and implement some programs of relief in this space. Federal Treasurer Scott Morrison is belatedly taking some action and has now signed off on the development of a new financing model at a meeting with his state and territory counterparts in Canberra. It will be designed to group together financing requests to generate more investment at cheaper interest rates. Small steps forward for a system that seems increasingly focused on building wealth rather than providing much needed housing.
