Price Pressure and Postcode Discrimination

23 June 2022

ABC TV Q and A program

NGAA CEO Bronwen Clark appears on the program, broadcast from Werribee, to ask:

"The pace of population growth here in Werribee is being replicated right across the outer suburbs of Melbourne, Brisbane, Sydney, Adelaide and Perth. Already 5.2 million people live in high-growth areas where there are not enough local jobs, where key workers have long and expensive commutes, where households have higher levels of financial stress and less access to vital health services. Brendan O'Connor, how will the government end postcode discrimination for people in the outer suburbs?"
