Affordable – Accessible housing allows households with diverse incomes, abilities and needs to live together in attractive, diverse and dynamic neighbourhoods


Affordable housing

Living diverse incomes, abilities and needs to live together in attractive, diverse and dynamic

Affordable Housing

  • Housing is considered affordable if it costs less than 30% of a household budget. Transportation is the second largest expense for families, but few often consider these costs when choosing a place to live.

  • A more complete measure of affordability is that combined housing and transportation costs take up no more than 45% of a household budget.

Key Findings diverse incomes, abilities and needs to live together in attractive, diverse and dynamic (THWC)

  • Attributes of location matter most to households. Specifically safety and security; easy access to work and schools; and being located near family and friends and public transport.

  • People were happier to have smaller properties if it meant that they could live in their preferred location.

  • There was a strong preference to live in the inner and coastal regions. However, only half of respondents were able to choose these locations when constrained by household budget.

Planning and the Provision of Affordable Housing Active Australia

OBSERVATIONS

  • Housing Diversity doesn’t always equal affordability

  • 1 Bedroom Apartments of limited demand (THWC)

  • Inclusionary Zoning – Mandatory Provisions already in place but have had limited affect

  • Ensure contributions are affordable in perpetuity

  • Parking Requirement Adjustment Factors (not fully explored)

How can Active Australia we improve affordable living?

  • Recognise transportation affordability as a planning goal of equal or greater importance than congestion reduction.

  • Evaluate ways that common planning decisions (roadway expansion, parking requirements in zoning, the location of public facilities such as schools) affect transport and housing affordability.

  • Support affordable modes (walking, cycling and public transit)

  • Support carsharing, which reduces the need to own a vehicle for occasional use.

How can Active Australia we improve affordable living?

  • Support compact, mixed, multi-modal development and transit-oriented development which reduce the distances that people must travel to reach services and activities, and improves their travel options.

  • Reduce or eliminate parking requirements, and encourage parking unbundling (parking is rented separately from building space), particularly for lower-priced housing, so residents are not forced to pay for parking they do not need.

  • Minimum Service Levels – Public Transport in outlying areas
