This project was originally conducted by JSA for the NSW Community Housing Industry Association in 2017-18, and is as current in today’s affordable housing crisis as it was then. It is based on extensive research about reasons for resistance to affordable (including community) housing, and effective ways of building community support for affordable housing.
The aim of the research was to provide practical, evidence based assistance for proponents seeking to build support for affordable housing developments, whether they be from the public, community or private sector.
The research includes post-occupancy research on affordable housing developments that had been subject to a high level of community opposition, including development that had initially been refused and been approved by the NSW Land and Environment Court.
