According to the Melbourne Institute HILDA report home ownership rates could fall below 50% by as early as next year. We have rising rates of people sleeping rough on the streets of Melbourne and across the State as the newspapers have been reporting lately and private rental is becoming less affordable for those on low to moderate incomes.
How are we going to solve what looks like a perfect storm of housing problems?
Come along to Baxter Hall at Christ Church St Kilda, 14 Acland Street on Thursday August 18th at 5.15pm and hear three speakers talk about alternative housing tenures to either home ownership or renting. There are solutions out there. We just need our policy people and politicians to embrace them.
- John Enticott on Community Land Trusts in Australia
- Liz Mumford on mixed equity housing
- John McInerney on the potential of co-operative housing
