A new, expanded expert panel has been appointed to help unlock more housing throughout Queensland.

In 2018, the Queensland Government established the Housing Supply Expert Panel to advise on the South East Queensland Growth Monitoring Program and provide independent expert advice about how to appropriately manage land supply and associated issues in the fast-growing south east corner of the State. It was announced, 8 September 2022, the remit of the Panel would be expanded to provide advice on housing supply state-wide.
