Report to Council Meeting 28 April 2020 - Draft Monash Affordable Housing Strategy(PDF, 183KB)

Council resolved to:

1. Note the content and recommendations of the Draft Monash Affordable Housing Strategy.

2. Send the proposed strategy to relevant development industry and public housing association stakeholders seeking their feedback on the proposed strategy and with a view to helping Council to further evaluate the recommendations contained in the report.

In line with this resolution, Council is now undertaking targeted engagement with key stakeholders on the Draft Monash Affordable Housing Strategy(PDF, 2MB)

Rising house prices and rents, and limited investment in social and affordable housing, have led to a dramatic increase in the number of households experiencing housing stress in Monash. In response, Council has developed an Affordable Housing Strategy.

The strategy makes a clear case for taking action to increase the provision of affordable housing in Monash. It also demonstrates the need for affordable housing, and the social and economic benefits of having more affordable housing.
