#civilsociety #planners #privatesector #publicauthorities Avenues for action

  • Make sustainable housing affordable and accessible using planning measures, regulations and funding to guide the direction of housing development.
  • Possible actions include retrofitting social housing, incorporating social dimensions (e.g. affordability and accessibility) in funding criteria, and using regulations to prevent the privatisation of green spaces and the gentrification of neighbourhoods.
  • Integrate social responsibility (e.g. affordable housing) into future property and real-estate development contracts.
  • Prioritise and enable creative housing arrangements (e.g. multigenerational houses, shared housing, cooperatives).
