Housing in Regional Australia: Meeting a Growing Demand
Regional Australia is experiencing a renaissance driven by urban ‘push’ factors which include housing affordability. RAI research highlights 1 in 5 people living in Sydney, Brisbane, Melbourne and Perth are looking to make the move.
However, many regional communities in Australia have long faced challenges in providing the right mix of housing they need to bolster their populations and fuel economic growth.
We invite you to join this FREE webinar where our panel of experts will shine a light on this topic.
Our webinar, led by RAI Chief Economist Dr Kim Houghton, will explore:
– the current state of regional housing markets;
– the challenges associated with providing fit-for-purpose housing in non-metropolitan areas;
– the measures that are being, or could be, taken to meet housing needs in Regional Australia;
– and governance – who is responsible – government and industry?
If you are interested in regional housing, thriving regional communities, jobs or a more sustainable and productive population balance between cities and regions, join this free event. There will be a Q&A session during the webinar, with attendees encouraged to submit questions in advance.
