Housing Affordability

Australia’s housing problem is unique and not properly understood.  Victorian Premier Ted Ballieu visited China a number of times seeking foreign investment in our real estate industry.  He was successful in raising not just overseas interest but also Victorian house prices.  This has put owning a home (rather than a flat or apartment) beyond the reach of ordinary people.

Young, old and in between all need safe, energy efficient housing.  Building regulations should not require a choice between a water tank and solar hot water service.  It is the Solar Hot Water service which will contribute more to reducing the carbon footprint and sustainable cost effective living!
