Hodgman Government is seeking to purchase new completed units from small to medium builders and developers around the State, Minister for Housing Roger Jaensch said.

Tenders have been called for newly completed units as part of the Home Builders Purchase Program, which will boost the State’s social housing supply and will target supply in high demand housing areas.

Hodgman Government has been working hard to address housing stress through our Affordable Housing Strategy, which is on track to assist over 1,600 additional households by June 2019, including new supply of 941 affordable lots and homes.

Procurement is particularly aimed at small to medium builders and developers who may build a small number of units a year, and will sell ‘off the plan’ projects to Housing Tasmania.

Submissions will close at 2:00 pm, Wednesday 12 December 2018.

Tender documents can be accessed and an information session will be held at 2 pm Friday 16 November in Hobart.

“Increasing the supply of social housing is a key deliverable of the Government’s Affordable Housing Strategy, and the Hodgman Government has set a target to triple the number of new affordable houses by 2025.” Minister Jaensch said.
