Right across Queensland, we know housing is tough right now. In Pumicestone communities, people tell me loud and clear that they are under pressure when it comes to housing.
The reasons are complex. We have more people moving to Queensland from interstate, we lost homes during the floods, and since COVID more Queenslanders are choosing to live in smaller households, increasing demand.
Meanwhile, rents, house prices, cost of living and interest rates are all going up.
Our Palaszczuk Labor Government is taking real action to make sure Queenslanders have a roof over their heads, with over 50 urgent measures.
