Understanding how policy settings affect developer decisions

Steven Rowley, Chris Leishman, Oluwole Olatunji, Jian Zuo, Adam Crowe

This research examined how policy settings and new construction technologies and processes affect developer decisions to provide private sector housing supply and might improve affordability. The complexity of the development process, the structure of development organisations, the variety of products delivered, and land ownership issues mean the development decision-making process varies by organisation and site by site. Therefore, it is too simplistic to assume policy settings will have exactly the same impact on each and every developer and on each and every site.
