Infrastructure Victoria recently released its Draft Infrastructure Strategy for Victoria. An important document informed by considerable evidence and public engagement.
It is very welcoming to see that in its top three draft recommendations they have included “Investing in social and affordable housing for vulnerable Victorians to significantly increase supply.” (pg.41).
This short video summarises why Infrastructure Victoria considers housing as essential infrastructure and why affordable housing is particularly important for supporting vulnerable Victorians.
Infrastructure Victoria’s assessment was informed by a preliminary affordable housing needs assessment undertaken by Affordable Development Outcomes for Infrastructure Victoria. The Report can be downloaded here.
I welcome the opportunity to discuss how I can assist your organisation to better understand affordable housing requirements and delivery solutions so together we can work towards meeting this key infrastructure challenge.
