Submission: Housing Choices Discussion Paper

Publication date: 
March 2018

In this submission to the ACT Government on its Housing Choices Discussion Paper, ACTCOSS suggests that housing choice needs to be about more than densification, but about ensuring that new development is accompanied by adequate social and community infrastructure, adequate greenspace and, above all, that it delivers more affordable housing within the reach of people in the lower income deciles.

Community and public housing need to continue to be part of the housing choice mix in Canberra and we need additional community housing capacity to manage consistent failure in the private rental market.
