Kim O’KEEFFE (Shepparton) (15:09): (352) My question is to the Minister for Housing in the other place, and the information I seek is: when will we see the rollout of the Victorian housing statement, which pledges to build 800,000 new homes over the next decade to boost housing supply and affordability in regional and rural Victoria? My electorate has one of the highest rates of homelessness across the state. The waitlist for social housing was at 2659 at the end of 2022, and that number continues to grow. The devastation of the October 2022 floods displaced many people from their homes. This has left a reduced housing rental stock, leaving many people homeless. The housing statement also mentions cutting the red tape and working closely with local councils, which needs to happen to ensure a faster delivery of housing.
