Tradesman NEWS - Housing Shortage Summit

Three international experts will participate in a one-day Summit being convened by the Housing Industry Association in Sydney tomorrow: ‘Financing Urban Infrastructure - Australia’s Housing Future’. “The inequitable ‘user pays’ funding model for infrastructure is adding considerably to the price of new housing as well as reducing the supply of new housing,” said HIA Chief Economist, Dr Harley Dale. “The current funding model is untenable and alternative models need to be considered and adopted. HIA’s Infrastructure Summit includes three eminent international speakers who will discuss contemporary experiences and consider future options for reducing one of the largest barriers to boosting Australia’s new housing supply,” Harley Dale added.
