Victorian Nationals plan to boost regional housing by releasing 50,000 new residential land lots
The Nationals opposing the new tax, to help see the rural and regional towns grow and thrive.
Many people are choosing to make the move to country Victoria for a better life and lifestyle for themselves and their family. But shortages in building materials, new regional housing lots and a greedy new tax grab by the Andrews Labor Government is threatening to put the brakes on regional Victoria's potential.
Our positive plan to release 50,000 new lots onto the market will boost supply in rural communities outside of metropolitan Melbourne and the city of Greater Geelong
Opposing the new tax
Property experts fear Labor's massive new housing tax will mean first home buyers and families will pay at least $25,000 for new housing lots. They also say it will stonewall new home builds in towns where it's most needed.
Particularly in rural and remote towns where it will make small scale developments an unviable investment. If elected to Government in November, we'll support families and young Victorians to realise the dream of owning or building their own home.
Investing and sending skilled workers
We'll achieve it by investing in sending skilled planning experts to work with smaller councils to boost their resourcing and speed up the approvals process. We'll also make the necessary legislative changes to stop applications for new developments getting stranded on the Minister's desk. Population growth has many benefits.
Working with the community
More people means more spending, more jobs, more services, better education and healthcare and more opportunities for country Victorian businesses to grow and thrive. There's an opportunity lapping at our doorstep. The Nationals will continue to work proactively with regional Victorian communities to reach our full potential and build an even better future.
