The panel presented key findings from an Australian Housing and Urban Research Institute (AHURI) Inquiry.
The discussions focused on outcomes in the UK, where there has been much policy concern and experimentation, specifically in relation to use of planning system tools to leverage new affordable housing supply. It also examined outcomes in Australia, where governments have implemented a range of strategies, policies and programs to support affordable housing supply over the past decade.
This event was organised by our Urban Housing Lab incubator program.
Australia’s cities have shifted from centres of manufacturing and industry to the drivers of a globalised economy fueled by knowledge, creativity and innovation
This forum explores how two nations with shared traditions but very different systems of urban governance and planning mediate the supply of new housing, and the roles played by government, planning authorities, developers, property owners and the public in this process.
