Description

Alternative housing solutions for a missing middle - An issues focus on Stonnington & Boroondara

The last decade has seen a shift in the housing market. With property and construction a driving force of our country’s economy, many Australians have fallen victim to housing unaffordability, an over saturation of low quality, investor focused housing ‘product' and inappropriate 'market" driven development fueled by speculation.

This has seen the arrival of alternative development models: sustainably driven, design led and collectively minded. These models may be the alternative today, but could they become the new normal as our ageing population is faced with a unique set of housing challenges as they move into retirement?

How possible is it for downsizers to create intentional communities with like-minded neighbours, family and friends while maintaining control over the location, design and built form outcomes of their homes? Particularly in the suburbs within Stonnington & Boorondara?

The talk and panel discussion will focus on:

- What is the planning landscape for medium density development in Stonnington & Boroondara?

- How can the community promote more affordable and better designed and built medium density accommodation in Stonnington & Boorondara?

- what are the opportunities and barriers for citizen-led housing in Stonnington and Boorondara?

- can citizen-led housing provide a practical solution to introduce quality infill development into the “missing middle” suburbs?
