BREAKING: Justin Thomas for Hornsby


Sustainable Australia Party is an independent community movement with a science and evidence-based policy platform. Not left. Not right. 

For a fair and sustainable Australia

We are often asked what the difference is between SAP and other political parties or candidates, including the Greens. The main difference is that we are the only political party to put our environment first - and therefore our health, economy and quality of life.

Environment means "the [natural and built] surroundings or conditions in which a person, animal, or plant lives or operates."[1] This includes our home, street, neighbourhood, suburb, region, country and planet.

Our #EnvironmentFirst plan:

🔴 Stop corruption (including in politics, planning and development)
🟠 Stop overdevelopment (including housing sprawl and inappropriate high-rise)
🟢 Stabilise population (mainly by returning annual permanent immigration to normal[2])

And much more including a $500+pw UBI[3] to help create a fairer Australia, which will be particularly important when we transition away from the unsustainable and inevitably failed Liberal/Labor 'houses and holes' economy and as AI increases. See Policies.

Preferences? No deals!

SAP contests a range of federal, state/territory and local government elections. As an independent community movement, after you Vote 1 for Sustainable Australia Party, we ask that you decide where to direct your own preferences. Don't let any party or independent candidate tell you where to direct your preferences - i.e. don't follow their how-to-vote cards! See 'Preferences' under 'About us' in our website menu.

[2] SAP is a pro-immigration party. As part of our #EnvironmentFirst plan, we simply support returning Australia's annual permanent immigration program to the normal Twentieth Century average level of 70,000 p.a. This would be non-discriminatory and have no impact on our humanitarian (refugee) intake.

[3] Universal basic income for Australians.

SUBMISSION: Inquiry into housing affordability and supply in Australia

Housing is a fundamental need and human right. Perversely, homes are now treated as an investment asset by governments rather than a shelter in which to live and/or raise a family.

Ageing countries have higher economic growth - and the improved health and longevity of older people increases their economic contributions.

MEDIA RELEASE: Infrastructure cannot be doubled with population doubling because Australian cities have reached diseconomies of scale

“It used to be easy to deliver infrastructure when the government owned the land, but because our major cities are already planned and built up, there is no room to retro-fit new infrastructure without expensive additions like land buy-backs and tunnelling,” said William Bourke, President of Sustainable Australia Party.
