ABOUT US

 

The Advisory Group membership includes representatives of Victoria’s leading residential development and community housing peak bodies, private and not-for-profit development and financing organisations, planning and design advisors.   

Members share the view that Affordable Housing is essential to Victoria’s productivity and liveability, and that greater focus and investment by governments in partnership with the development industry and not-for-profit housing sector is required to increase the supply of Affordable Housing.
