Since 2010, an affordable housing strategy has been developed with the aim of promoting greater housing affordability by 2020. According to Western Australia’s Department of Housing, over 15,900 new affordable homes have been built from 2010 – 2014, against a target of 20,000 homes by 2020. Even though this highlights a significant improvement in the provision of affordable housing, ensuring a steady supply of affordable housing options for all Western Australians has proved to be an ongoing challenge.
Therefore, greater emphasis has to be placed on the integration of both the private and public sectors to deliver long-term affordable housing outcomes for the region. More now than ever, it is essential for both sectors to come together and brainstorm initiatives, exchange knowledge and catalyse partnerships to expand the supply of affordable housing across the state.
For this a WA Affordable Housing Development Summit is being organised in February next year. CHL has been chosen as one of the media partners for this summit. The WA Affordable Housing Development Summit is a one-day forum bringing key stakeholders from government, housing providers and private industry together to gain latest insights to strategies and practices advancing affordable housing in Western Australia.
Key housing industry leaders including Steve Bevington will reflect on what has worked in the past, what should be done differently and discuss practical solutions to advance affordable housing in Western Australia.
