Housing benchmark report

A point in time snapshot of housing provision.

The Sunshine Coast Housing Benchmark 2017 provides a point in time snapshot of housing provision within the local government area.

It will be used as a reference document to monitor and measure progress in achieving improved housing solutions for all.

The Housing Benchmark Report 2017 is a tool that aims to monitor and measure progress towards the set target and achieve the desired outcome. While a number of previous studies have been completed regarding housing on the Sunshine Coast, this is the first housing benchmark report.

With over 90,000 new dwellings to be delivered in the next 25 years, the shape and form of housing and the supporting infrastructure (transport, utilities, waste, employment nodes, open space, and social infrastructure) are major challenges and opportunities for the region.

An updated housing benchmark report and infographic will be released in late 2022 based on the 2021 ABS census findings.
