Urban Development Program

Our vision for a future Urban Development Program includes:

  • Coordinating and monitoring housing supply and targets in urban renewal areas, infill and new communities in land release areas;
  • Coordinating and prioritising the delivery of the necessary supporting infrastructure and signaling early identification of blockages;
  • Integrating social and affordable housing targets and ensuring their programming;
  • Annual reporting to enable monitoring and input back into policy development and housing supply programs; and
  • A multi-channelled DPIE/GSC led data collation with UDIA collaboration to facilitate industry liaison/feedback in an annual/rolling process.

Home Purchaser Sentiment Survey

The UDIA Urbis Home Purchaser Sentiment Survey was launched in August 2019. UDIA and Urbis have partnered in this survey to track sentiment towards the Sydney property market. The initial survey provides a baseline to measure any changes in future survey cycles. The purpose of the survey is a pulse check into how positive or negative Sydney residents feel about purchasing and price growth in the residential property market. Results provide UDIA members and more broadly the property industry with insight into what buyers are looking for and where they are looking to purchase like no other survey.
