A profile of social housing in Australia /

by Australian Institute of Health and Welfare.

Publisher: Melbourne, Vic. Australian Institute of Health and Welfare 2010Description: vi, 47 p.Online Access: Electronic copy Summary: This report provides an overview of the different social housing programs that were provided under the most recent Commonwealth State Housing Agreement (CSHA), which was in place from 2003 to 2008, and the first six months of the National Affordable Housing Agreement (NAHA), which was introduced in January 2009. It shows that, in 2009, 81%of households being assisted by social housing were in public rental housing, while 9% were in mainstream community housing (social housing managed by the not-for-profit sector). Over the life of the CSHA the number of community housing dwellings increased considerably, while at the same time there was a decline in public rental housing stock. By 2008-09 almost half of the new allocations to social housing were to mainstream community housing, despite representing only about 10% of total stock in social housing. ; The report shows the demographic profile of households in social housing changed little over the course of the CSHA agreement. Older single people made up the highest proportion of household types. The median age for tenants in public rental housing is 54 years, and 44 years for tenants in state owned and managed Indigenous housing (SOMIH), compared to the median age of 37 years for all people in the Australian population. As social housing generally offers affordable rents and some security of tenure, tenants largely report being satisfied and the majority of tenants in public rental and mainstream community housing had lived in the same dwelling for more than 5 years. Occupancy rates were over 90% across social housing, and higher in major cities, where most social housing dwellings are located.Availability: (1)

Accommodating Australians : Commonwealth Government involvement in housing /

by Troy, Patrick N.

Publisher: Sydney, N.S.W. Federation Press 2012Description: xiii, 320 p. : ill.Notes: Includes bibliographical references and indexSummary: The book discusses the way in which Commonwealth initiative led to the States adopting town planning processes that due to State departure from historic approaches to the provision of urban infrastructure services has helped fuel a massive rise in dwelling prices. This book explores the response of the Australian Government during the bleakest years of WWII when it took stock of the situation facing the housing of the people and the way it developed a housing program in the post war period to improve the way they were accommodated. The ambitions of those who witnessed the extremes of housing deprivation during the Depression and resolved to improve the quality of housing, to make it more affordable and the nation fairer are outlined. It is a story about the rise and fall of public housing and helps explain why Australian housing has now become one of the most expensive in the developed world. It is also about the way Commonwealth initiatives built on the reforming agendas of critics within the States of the prevailing mode of and approach to urban development led to the introduction of town planning in Australia. It is also a sad tale about the way principle and mature consideration of the rational way to develop our cities gave way to pre-occupation with accommodating the short term wishes of developers. This history is an important aspect of Commonwealth-State relations over the last 70 years and explores the way interpretations of the Constitution have evolved to result in the Commonwealth gradually assuming greater authority over the States in the development and management of our accommodation (as in other areas). It in, large measure, documents the fragile and limited nature of the idea of the Federation and the few opportunities taken to see things as a nation rather than a loose coalition of States.Availability: Items available for loan: Brotherhood of St Laurence (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).
