Affordable Housing

Affordable Housing Action Plan

The key focus of the Action Plan is to increase the supply of social housing. Social housing provides for the most vulnerable and disadvantaged households in Knox. Council has a greater capacity to influence this market in partnership with social housing providers that are responsible for financing, constructing and managing social housing in Victoria. Council’s options to influence affordability within the private housing market are limited because the Victorian planning system does not currently allow councils to require developers to contribute to affordable and/or social housing.

It outlines objectives, actions, outcomes, timelines and costs to improve housing affordability in Knox in accordance with Council’s defined affordable housing roles as planner, provider, partner and advocate.
