Social and Affordable Housing Strategy

Everyone deserves the safety and security of a place to call home. Our Social and Affordable Housing Strategy seeks to increase housing options for Knox's most vulnerable community members.

About the Plan

Affordable housing means houses for very low to medium income households where housing costs are low enough for people to afford other basic living expenses.

Social housing refers to public housing and housing owned, controlled or managed by a participating registered agency.

Our vision for social housing is of high quality, well-designed homes that promote liveability, are integrated with and contribute to local neighbourhood amenity, are of an appropriate sixe for the number of occupants, and are built to the highest possible environmental standards.

Housing Changes Lives is the key message that drives Council's commitment to increasing access to safe and affordable housing in Knox. When housing is secure and adequate, there is a significant positive impact on health, employment and education.
