Manufactured Homes (Residential Parks) Amendment Bill 2024


The REIQ welcomed the opportunity to provide feedback on the Manufactured Homes (Residential Parks) Amendment Bill 2024 (MHRPA Bill) introduced into the Queensland Parliament by the Minister for Housing, Local Government and Planning and Minister for Public Works on 21 March 2024.

Queensland is currently in the grips of an unprecedented housing crisis.

There is an urgent need to increase housing supply, address shortages and improve access to affordable housing in Queensland. Presently, residential parks play a crucial role in providing affordable housing options.

Manufactured homes are generally more cost effective than traditional housing options and offer flexibility making them an attractive choice for low- to middle-income families and pensioners.

With proper Government support and regulation, the supply of affordable manufactured homes in residential parks can be encouraged, ensuring that Queenslanders have access to affordable and suitable housing.

We are concerned that the reforms proposed by the Government may constrain the sustainability and financial viability of residential parks and discourage private investment, critically impacting the already strained supply of affordable housing in Queensland.
