  1. Social housing as infrastructure: rationale, prioritisation and investment pathway

    Author(s): Julie Lawson; Todd Denham; Jago Dodson; Kathleen Flanagan; Keith Jacobs; Chris Martin; Ryan van den Nouwelant; Hal Pawson; Laurence Troy

    Description: Considering social housing as infrastructure may improve investment in the sector, as well as increase transparency and efficiency in project appraisal and funding prioritisation. It explored different methods of calculating the benefits of social housing relative to cost, including the savings that might accrue in other areas of government expenditure. The research also modelled ways to best finance and fund social housing, revealing that a capital investment strategy supplemented by efficient financing is substantially more cost-effective than a commercially financed model reliant on an operating subsidy.

  2. Social housing as infrastructure: an investment pathway

    Author(s): Julie Lawson; Hal Pawson; Laurence Troy; Ryan van den Nouwelant; Carrie Hamilton

    Description: This research modelled five alternative pathways to funding social housing and found the ‘capital grant’ model, supplemented by efficient financing, provides the most cost effective model for Australia. The research also established the current and future unmet need for social housing in different parts of Australia.

  3. 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.

  4. 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.

  5. Paying for affordable housing in different market contexts

    Author(s): Bill Randolph; Laurence Troy; Vivienne Milligan; Ryan van den Nouwelant

    Description: This study analysed recently completed affordable housing developments across Australia to ascertain how affordable housing project costs, revenues and subsidies interact. The research reveals the diverse funding arrangements adopted by providers, which have resulted in affordable housing project outcomes being driven by funding opportunities rather than by defined housing needs, and identified six key lessons about financing affordable housing.

  6. Government led innovations in affordable housing delivery

    Author(s): Steven Rowley; Amity James; Peter Phibbs; Ryan van den Nouwelant; Laurence Troy

    Description: This project examined state government-led innovations in affordable housing through analysis of two state-level strategies and two state-level programs. The research shows effective strategies and programs rely on strong political leadership; adopt a whole-of-housing industry approach to consultation and implementation; communicate objectives effectively to all stakeholders; are resilient to changes of government; and are best run from a central agency with a flexible organisational structure that can respond quickly to opportunities.

  7. Is deteriorating housing affordability reducing lower income central city worker supply and productivity?

    Author(s): Ryan van den Nouwelant; Laura Crommelin; Shanaka Herath; Bill Randolph

    Description: The study examines whether the diminishing supply of affordable housing options for lower income central city workers is having an impact on central city businesses and on the overall productivity of those economies.

  8. Housing affordability, central city economic productivity and the lower income labour market

    Author(s): Ryan van den Nouwelant; Laura Crommelin; Shanaka Herath; Bill Randolph

    Description: This research found that Australian low income workers who work in the central city have to travel greater distances to get to work and are more likely to make a number of housing related compromises, such as living in a smaller dwelling, sharing with unrelated adults, or renting rather than buying. However, the effects of the housing challenges faced by low income central city workers are not currently registering on productivity and economic growth measurements in Australian cities.
