AHURI ONE-DAY CONFERENCE
Ready for growth: Affordable housing supply solutions
Tuesday 29 May 2018
The Canberra Rex Hotel
Our first national one-day conference for 2018 was Ready for growth: affordable housing supply solutions. The Conference was held at the Canberra Rex Hotel on Tuesday 29 May 2018.
There is widespread recognition that Australia needs more affordable housing – but how can we make this a reality and support the growth of this highly engaged sector?
This national conference, informed by brand new AHURI research examines affordable housing from all angles: What government policies have already worked in Australia and are they replicable? How have the US and UK used the planning system to build more affordable housing and can Australia do the same? What models have worked to best to engage the private sector deliver more affordable housing projects?
Key topics include:
- Research launch Findings from the AHURI Inquiry–Increasing affordable housing supply: evidence-based principles and strategies for Australian policy and practice.
- The role of governments–The latest on the Australian Government's supply solutions including the including the National Housing Finance and Investment Corporation; successful state/territory strategies that have increased supply; and local government planning levers to boost supply.
- The role of providers–organisations (both not-for-profit and private sector) that have successfully delivered affordable housing will provide their perspectives on opportunities to increase the supply.
- Examining integration–A big picture examination of how government, CHPs and private industry can work together to realise growth.
