Housing Summit

We want to see our nation develop a country-wide strategy with all stakeholders to develop a housing plan.  This is what the National Government did in 2009 to develop their employment policy and it has worked.  bringing together all the stakeholders to develop a plan on all issues of housing: ownership, rentals, social housing is the only way to get a well thought out plan that delivers for our local communities and their specific circumstances.

We stand for dignity and choice for our retired population in their time of need.  Our policy is to allow people to choose to take their retirement at a reduced rate of superannuation if they retire earlier due to need, or we will offer a greater rate if they opt for retirement later.
