Simon Corbell has announced that he’s doubling the pace of land release in the ACT, the single most effective move to improve housing affordability!
Actually he put out a release celebrating the eco-friendliness of the “Brindabellas Bonython” development which sounds like a small spiky plant but is actually a new suburb as for as I can tell. Down the bottom of the release he slipped this tidbit in:
â€œThis year the ACT Government is providing some 2000 dwellings in the accelerated land release program. This supply represents a more than doubling of last yearâ€™s program. A mix of allotments is being supplied ACT-wide to accelerate supply and ensure a range of housing types to suit different lifestyles and needs,â€ Mr Corbell said.
Not quite sure what drove this approach but the plug for the developer in the footer of the Minister’s media release was a nice touch too.
