  2. 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.

  3. Modelling housing need in Australia to 2025

    Author(s): Steven Rowley; Chris Leishman; Emma Baker; Rebecca Bentley; Laurence Lester
