Housing in urban policy
Accommodating the diverse housing needs of city-dwellers
Coordinating planning and housing supply targets to deliver urban consolidation and renewal with diverse housing, including social and affordable housing
Access to affordable, appropriate, safe and secure housing is foundational to the economic, environmental and social functioning of cities. Urban policy in Australia is primarily focused on the supply of new housing in Australian cities in response to the need to manage urban growth boundaries and address housing affordability issues. This includes consideration of the type and location of new housing supply; the impact of housing on urban form; and the provision of affordable and non-market housing.
