Local Government and Housing Project: survey

Thursday, 7 December 2017

HAVE YOUR SAY: Closes 18 December, 2017

Confronted by escalating challenges in regards to housing, Australia has:

  • One of the most unaffordable housing markets in the world
  • Decreasing home ownership
  • A minimal and diminishing stock of public housing and
  • Pockets of poverty and disadvantage in the private rental sector

These conditions have fuelled a search for new policy solutions in housing and the desire to recruit a new range of actors – including local governments – into the formation of housing policies and programs.

The Local Government and Housing ARC Linkage Project investigates the role of local government in housing Australians in the 21st Century. The project will examine this relationship between local government and housing, and identify new ways in which local governments – and the communities they represent – can meet their housing aspirations. 


Led by Professor Andrew Beer at UniSA, the Project is currently running a survey open to all local governments.

Your council CEO (or delegate) has until COB Monday December 18 to participate. The survey can be found here:

Queries about the project or the survey can be directed to Project Officer Sandy Horne (08) 8302 0880.
