The Housing Crisis: Victoria's new housing plan - online zoom event

Tuesday - 31 October, 2023 - 06:00 PM

Online - Zoom link via RSVP - Victoria, Australia

When former Premier Dan Andrews announced the government’s new housing plan, he described it as "the most comprehensive shake-up of one of the most important policy areas in decades."

Tearing down 44 public housing blocks across the state and replacing them with a mix of public, private and social dwellings, and stripping local government of planning powers, is indeed ambitious.

But will it increase much needed housing supply? Will it help those most in need of affordable homes? Is it the right balance between private and public investment?
