Design and product standards for social housing

Under the Queensland Housing Strategy 2017–2027 we aim to deliver more social and affordable housing for Queensland.

The strategy redefines how we'll deliver housing to:

  • support urban renewal
  • generate new jobs
  • provide affordable housing
  • driving innovative housing design that meets contemporary housing needs.

Read our design and construction standards, and product standards, to learn more about our approach to delivering social and affordable housing.

Design and construction standards

Our design and construction standards ensure that new social housing dwellings:

  • are designed thoughtfully
  • meet service delivery requirements
  • minimise ongoing maintenance
  • contribute to diverse and sustainable communities.
