Victorian Government Response to Retirement Housing Sector Inquiry

VICTORIAN INQUIRY INTO RETIREMENT HOUSING SECTOR

On February 24, 2016, the Legislative Council of the Victorian Parliament agreed to a motion that the Legal and Social Issues Committee inquire into the operation and regulation of the retirement housing sector, with the aim of identifying opportunities for improvement and reform.

The Committee issued the report on its Inquiry on March 7, 2017. The report included 15 recommendations, 13 of which were directed to the Victorian Government.

If a Committee’s report recommends that the Government take particular action, the appropriate Minister must provide the Council with a Government response to the committee’s recommendations within six months of the report being laid before the Council.

The response is well worth a read and will provide food for thought in light of the Greiner Inquiry.
