  2. Housing supply responsiveness in Australia: distribution, drivers and institutional settings

    Author(s): Rachel Ong; Tony Dalton; Nicole Gurran; Christopher Phelps; Steven Rowley; Gavin Wood

    Description: This study investigated the key drivers of Australian housing supply responsiveness; including price, topographical constraints, climate, existing land uses and planning regulations; and considered policy development options to improve the scale and speed of new housing supply responses.

  6. Shared home ownership by people with disability

    Author(s): Ilan Wiesel; Jane Bullen; Karen Fisher; Di Winkler; Astrid Reynolds

    Description: This study investigated the most appropriate and beneficial shared home ownership models for people with disability. While shared ownership brings potential benefits such as can enhancing housing choice, security of tenure and sense of ownership, it can expose people to debt risks. Capital investment by people with disability into shared ownership may also reduce the overall cost of housing assistance required by government to overcome the supply gap.

  8. Addressing concentrations of disadvantage—Springvale case study report

    Author(s): Andrea Sharam; Wendy Stone

    Description: The case study work was undertaken as part of a larger project looking into concentrations of disadvantage in Australia’s major capital cities—Sydney, Melbourne and Brisbane. The main objectives of the case study work were to better understand the experience of living in a ‘disadvantaged area’, to explore the pros and cons of their local area from the resident perspective and to investigate the role that housing, planning and associated interventions may play in either exacerbating or tackling local problems.
