How do we stop rents spiralling, and prioritise housing for people over profit, at the local government level?
The Greens have just announced three Brisbane City Council policy initiatives to freeze rents, introduce a vacancy levy, and discourage homes being rented out for profit as short-term accommodation. How will these be implemented, and what else will we do to tackle the housing crisis if we gain control of Council?
This free public discussion forum on Tuesday 28th November, 6-7.30pm, is open to anyone interested in learning more about our vision for housing in Brisbane, and how local government can and should be part of the solution beyond simply giving tax breaks to the private construction industry. We'll have speakers, including Jonno, share our position on housing and facilitate discussion with participants about what it means and how we can build a more connected, sustainable, community-oriented Brisbane.
