Affordable Housing Forum - 24 July 2017

City west Housing is an organisation dedicated to the provision of affordable housing in Sydney. Don't miss an opportunity to be part of this event to find real-world solutions to Sydney’s affordable housing crisis.

Local and State government, community housing, investors and developers, planners, and leading academics will come together to find real-world solutions to Sydney’s affordable housing crisis. The one-day Affordable Housing Forum, on 24 July 2017 at UTS, will focus on how stakeholders can better work together to deliver affordable housing to low and moderate income earners.

Key objectives of the Forum include developing collaborative practice between local government and the community housing sector; advocacy for affordable housing targets in major development precincts and sites; exploring best practice models; and establishing coherent strategies for negotiating affordable housing contributions. Industry experts and leaders from Local Government, community housing, planning, and academia will be on hand to have a robust discussion about affordable housing in the metropolitan Sydney region.

This one-day Forum is designed to generate practical solutions for real-world application, with a formal Communique to be developed on the day. Special guests will be The Hon. Anthony Roberts MP, Minister for Planning, Minister for Housing & Special Minister of State and Heather Nesbitt, Social Commissioner, Greater Sydney Commission. Register for this event now.
