The Housing Summit: Transforming Housing in 2017

Woodward Conference Centre, 10th Floor, 185 Pelham Street, Carlton

Building on the success of the 2015 Housing Summit, Transforming Housing will host a second Housing Summit on 2nd June 2017.

The 2017 Housing Summit will respond to the recent Homes For Victorians strategy document, the refreshed Plan Melbourne and other key changes in the affordable and social housing sectors. It will be an opportunity to discuss a range of implementation strategies including how the Social Housing Growth Fund might be delivered and managed, the role of local government in supporting affordable housing projects, next steps for inclusionary zoning and mechanisms for redeveloping public housing sites.

The event will bring together 60 stakeholders from the affordable housing sector including: researchers; state government; local government; private developers; the investment community; and not-for-profit housing associations.  It will be an opportunity to contribute to current housing debates, create solutions to pressing housing problems and network with others who have a genuine interest in supporting, funding, designing and delivering affordable and social housing for very low to moderate income households.

We will be sending out invitations to core collaborators.

We also wish to encourage the participation of new voices in the housing sector.  If this is you - or you know someone who fits this description - we invite you to register your interest by briefly stating why you’re interested in participating via email to sarah.backhouse@unimelb.edu.au. As this event is capped at 60 participants, we cannot promise that all registrants will be able to attend.
