  1. Responding to the pandemic, can building homes rebuild Australia?

    Author(s): Steven Rowley; Adam Crowe; Catherine Gilbert; Marko Kruger; Chris Leishman; Jian Zuo

  2. The uneven distribution of housing supply, 2006–2016

    Author(s): Steven Rowley; Catherine Gilbert; Nicole Gurran; Chris Leishman; Chris Phelps

    Description: This research examines the quantity, composition and distribution of new housing supply across Australia between 2006 and 2016 and seeks to explain variations in local rates of production with reference to both demand and supply side considerations (e.g. population drivers, market cycles, regulatory barriers, construction costs).

  3. Strategic planning, ‘city deals’ and affordable housing

    Author(s): Madeleine Pill; Nicole Gurran; Catherine Gilbert; Peter Phibbs

    Description: This study examines how local and international funding interventions focussed on specific regions, such as City Deals, deliver affordable rental housing for low income households to enhance urban productivity. Such strategic policy interventions offer some promise in creating new economic opportunities, however explicit policies are needed to ensure low income households can access affordable housing close to employment opportunities.

  4. Inquiry into increasing affordable housing supply: Evidence-based principles and strategies for Australian policy and practice

    Author(s): Nicole Gurran; Steven Rowley; Vivienne Milligan; Bill Randolph; Peter Phibbs; Catherine Gilbert; Amity James; Laurence Troy; Ryan van den Nouwelant

    Description: This study examined the range of strategies and initiatives governments have used to leverage affordable housing supply across the continuum of housing needs (i.e. from social housing to affordable rental and home ownership) in a constrained funding and increasingly market driven context across a range of different jurisdictions and markets.

  5. Supporting affordable housing supply: inclusionary planning in new and renewing communities

    Author(s): Nicole Gurran; Catherine Gilbert; Kenneth Gibb; Ryan van den Nouwelant; Amity James; Peter Phibbs

    Description: This study examined how planning mechanisms support affordable housing supply in Australia and overseas. In England 43 per cent of affordable housing built in 2015–16 (12,866 units) were delivered due to inclusionary planning requirements, while more than 500 cities in the United States have inclusionary zoning or impact fee requirements to supply affordable housing. In Australia planning systems can support affordable housing supply, but additional funding or subsidy is usually required to produce homes affordable to those on low and very low incomes.
