Publisher: Sydney, N.S.W. COAG Reform Council 2012Description: PDF.Online Access: Electronic copy Notes: 30 April 2012 PDF is of full report only Chairman: Paul McClintock. Includes bibliographical references.Summary: This is the third report assessing progress under COAG's National Affordable Housing Agreement. In this report, the council focuses on the outcomes in the Agreement that relate to home purchase affordability, rental affordability, and housing market efficiency and responsiveness. The council found that nationally, based on the indicators and years that can be reported on, there is no indication that housing affordability has improved. Rental affordability in particular - as measured by the proportion of low income households spending more than 30 per cent of their income on rent - has worsened in capital cities and for those on the lowest incomes.Availability: (1)

Affordable housing and regional growth /

by Howe, Brian | Jope, Sally.

Publisher: unpub. 2005Description: 18p. PDF.Online Access: DOWNLOAD PDF Notes: By The Hon Brian Howe 2005 Dunstan Foundation Fellow and Sally Jope Brotherhood of St Laurence Draft. Not for public citationSummary: How well are housing markets in the non-metropolitan regions able to respond to demand? What impacts does this have on low to moderate income households? To what extent is the supply of low-cost housing considered when regional growth is being planned? These are some of the questions being explored by Mr Brian Howe, a 2005 Dunstan Fellow. The 2005 Dunstan Fellows Program aims to improve awareness amongst the general public and key decision makers of current and future problems relating to affordable housing, especially for families, and to identify and encourage implementation of key measures to address those problems. The program consists of four principal projects, each of which led by a Dunstan Fellow in consultation with the Convenor. The projects focus on aspects of the following topics: 1. A National Affordable Housing Agreement (Julian Disney) 2. Financing Public Housing (Prof Mike Berry) 3. Regional Growth and Affordable Housing (The Hon Brian Howe) 4. Work, Families and Affordable Housing (Assoc. Prof Barbara Pocock) The aim of this paper is to provide key information and stimulate discussion on regional growth and affordable housing. This paper includes secondary evidence from a review of the literature on housing and regional development and findings from roundtable discussions and interviews with people responsible for economic development and social housing services in non-metropolitan regions experiencing growth. The discussions were held in a regional centre, a small town and a rural community. A final discussion is to be held in a growth area in NSW within the Newcastle, Sydney and Wollongong region and will be included in the final report.Availability: Items available for reference: BSL Archives (1).

Better housing futures : stimulating private investment in affordable housing : report to the Affordable Housing Forum

by Allen Consulting Group | Brotherhood of St Laurence.

Publisher: Fitzroy, Vic. Brotherhood of St Laurence 2004Description: x.,49p.Other title: Better housing futures 1.Online Access: Electronic copy | Summary Notes: Includes bibliographical referencesSummary: This report prepared for the Affordable Housing Forum documents an investigation of policy options to finance an increased supply of affordable rental housing. This is needed because the shortage of such housing limits low-income households' access to employment and services, whereas well-located affordable housing contributes to efficient labour markets and economic growth. The authors considered three options -- governments bonds, public-private partnerships and tax credits. They argue that a relatively modest financial outlay by government would be sufficient to alleviate housing stress and achieve substantial social and economic benefits.Availability: Items available for reference: BSL Archives (1).
