At Noosa Chamber’s September 2023 Sunset Drinks networking event, Rob McCready of Altum Property Group gave an interesting fact-based presentation urging ways to increase housing supply and build more affordable housing.
As context, Rob explained, “Noosa is the most expensive local government area (LGA) in the State. The median price of detached houses is $1,295,000 and units $960,000, and little is available for rent. Key workers, who are the backbone of our community, are unable to afford or find accommodation in Noosa Shire. Many employers face challenges attracting and retaining staff due to lack of affordable housing.”
Rob McCready offered a range of approaches for addressing the critical affordable housing shortage. On the Noosa Chamber website, you can read details of Rob McCready’s presentation
