JSA’s Illawarra Shoalhaven Affordable Housing Strategic Options Report was launched by The Honorable Paul Scully, Minister for Planning and Public Spaces, on 26 July, 2023.
The Report has been developed in response to serious concern across a wider range of private, public and community sector bodies in the Region about the growing affordable housing crisis, and the impact that this is having on regional economic growth, the ability to attract and retain low, very low, and moderate income key workers, and the wellbeing of the wider community.
The research has been commissioned by Business Illawarra, the Region’s peak business organisation, with support from a range of private, government and community sector agencies including: the Illawarra Shoalhaven Joint Organisation (ISJO), consisting of Wollongong, Shellharbour, Kiama and Shoalhaven Councils; Warrigal Aged Care, one of the Region’s largest aged care providers; The Housing Trust, a regional Community Housing Provider operating primarily in Wollongong, Shellharbour and Kiama LGAs; MMJ Real Estate and the Property Council of Australia, the national group representing property developers and owners.
