G21 Addressing Disadvantage through affordable social housing paper

A partnership between the five municipalities in the G21 region and providers of social housing have collaborated to explore issues of disadvantage, questions of affordability and access to safe, secure housing for those in the community living on a low income.

This Issues Paper (released in March 2016), is an initiative which further demonstrates a commitment within the region to address the underlying causes of disadvantage in the G21 region.

This paper canvasses two regional “perspectives” as part of the national debate regarding affordable housing:

  • The role of Local Government in the support and facilitation of affordable housing.
  • The case for change - G21 is committed to advocating for a realistic approach to supporting initiatives to develop new affordable housing projects.
