Delivering affordable housing

Committee for Melbourne is delighted to invite you to a forum on delivering affordable housing. 

Where: The Committee’s E-ROOM
When: Tuesday, 16 November | 11.00am – 12.00pm AEDT (with an optional 20-minutes e-networking post-event)

The undersupply of social and affordable housing across Melbourne and Victoria is of growing concern.

The COVID-19 pandemic and subsequent economic turmoil, has highlighted the importance of increasing the supply of social and affordable housing for those that need it most, including essential workers.

In advance of the Victoria Government’s 10-year social and affordable strategy, the Committee submitted recommendations on the development of the strategy. The Committee called upon the Victorian Government to create a 40-year social and affordable housing strategy, which includes community awareness, data collection, target setting and the development of policies that will increase the supply of much needed housing.

Ahead of the strategy’s launch, the Committee is pleased to convene this forum exploring possible policy responses to increase the supply of social and affordable housing across Melbourne and Victoria. This is a community issue with generational implications.

Guest speakers include Jane Hodder, Partner, Herbert Smith Freehills and Chair of Committee for Melbourne’s Housing Mix Taskforce, Sarah Slattery, Managing Director, Slattery, Kris Daff, Managing Director, Assemble, and Karen Janiszewski, Director, Urbanxchange.
