Elizabeth Crouch

Elizabeth Crouch is the Housing Industry Association’s senior executive director – Industry Policy. Previously she was the senior executive director of building and planning services, a position she has held since May 1.

She is currently dealing with three major issues: The compliance burden and proliferation of red tape faced by HIA members; the decline in housing affordability linked to the under-investment by governments in infrastructure and the growing tax burden faced by the industry generally, and skills formation.

Ms Crouch joined HIA in 1997 and was appointed to the NSW position within a few months. She has a background in government, particularly at the federal level.
