Shelter NSW has commissioned Professor Peter Phibbs and Lisa Anne King to model the likely additional affordable rental housing that would be created over the next 10 years from the mechanism proposed by the Greater Sydney Commission to deliver an affordable rental housing target. The research also provides projections of the likely impact if State Environmental Planning policy No. 70 (SEPP 70) was expanded to councils across the Greater Sydney region.

The launch was followed by a panel discussion led by Professor Nicole Gurran on the implications of the findings for attempts to respond to Sydney’s intractable rental affordability crisis.
