  1. 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

    Description: This research developed a housing need simulation to quantify the need for affordable housing and identify the supply required to meet the demand for housing. This information is important for resource allocation, market monitoring, setting affordable housing targets, housing assistance budgeting and evidence for affordable housing contributions via planning policy.

  4. Australian demographic trends and implications for housing assistance programs

    Author(s): Gavin Wood; Melek Cigdem; Rachel Ong

    Description: The study forecasted future expenditure on housing assistance programs; the additional outlays on ISPs due to asset test concessions to home owners; and the aggregate value of home owner tax subsidies. These three housing subsidy components are estimated to increase from $25 billion in 2011 to $32.8 billion in 2031. This study also presented a secure lease scheme for low-income households who are eligible for public housing but currently live in private rental housing and require long term, stable housing. These households include the elderly, disabled, those suffering from long-term health conditions and families with children.

  5. Inquiry into housing policies, labour force participation and economic growth

    Author(s): Rachel Ong; Gavin Wood; Stephen Whelan; Melek Cigdem; Kadir Atalay; Jago Dodson

    Description: This research Inquiry presented evidence on how housing policies might promote labour force participation and economic growth through four channels—housing supply responsiveness, labour mobility, employment decisions and consumption. It highlights repositioning housing to a more central place within economic policy debates, and suggests a coordinated policy treatment of housing as an economic asset has implications for nation-wide economic growth.

  6. Housing, multi-level governance and economic productivity

    Author(s): Jago Dodson; Ashton de Silva; Tony Dalton; Sarah Sinclair

    Description: This study investigated appropriate frameworks to better understand the way in which housing policy mechanisms contribute to economic productivity and growth. It reviewed the literature, key Federal Government policy statements and reports released over the past decade; analysed the mechanisms through which housing policy influences economic behaviour; and tested such frameworks to better comprehend these processes.

  7. Housing and Indigenous disability: lived experiences of housing and community infrastructure

    Author(s): Elizabeth Grant; George Zillante; Amit Srivastava; Selina Tually; Alwin Chong

    Description: This study investigated the interconnections between housing, community infrastructure and quality of life for Indigenous people living with disability. It incorporated three case studies from Yalata and Point Pearce in South Australia and Greater Geelong in Victoria that revealed poor health and disability are major issues facing the Indigenous populations in these areas. The research highlights the need for specialist facilities for Indigenous people with disability designed and built in consultation with the local community and stakeholders, and that the NDIS understand and account for the challenges facing Indigenous people with disability.

    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. The key drivers of housing supply responsiveness were modelled to determine their relative influence.
