Sydney’s housing crisis will only get worse amid NIMBY-ism and delays to infrastructure projects

Thursday 17 March 2022
Experts are warning that Sydney’s housing crisis will only get worse amid NIMBY-ism and delays to infrastructure projects, declaring an epic fail of governance at every level that is hurting us all.
In the past month, approvals for new housing have dropped by 25 per cent, while across Sydney, the average home has surged in value by 22 per cent in just 12 months.
Department of Planning projections for the next five years show most Western Sydney councils are expected to fail to meet the home building targets they agreed to with the Greater Sydney Commission by as much as 46 per cent.
The new Minister for Planning and Homes, Anthony Roberts, knows he has a mammoth task ahead of him and said he was working on delivering about 120 projects in the city’s west and southwest that could see up to 17,000 new homes built.
