Future Living: A discussion paper identifying issues and options for housing our community.
Housing plays an important role in people’s health and wellbeing, in bringing communities together and in the shape of the city. Our aspiration is for an inner and central city where housing is affordable, well-designed and meets the diverse needs of our residents. Our housing has to be suitable for our residents as their needs change over their lifetime. It should be accessible to people from all walks of life, and developed in ways that facilitate positive community outcomes and create welcoming neighbourhoods. This paper explores options for overcoming our current housing issues.
