Evaluation and learning in public housing urban renewal

Released by researchers from Swinburne University of Technology, University of New South Wales and Monash University the report analyses how evaluation of public housing renewal is informing policy development and delivery to maximise financial returns and socio-economic outcomes.

It seeks to understand how key public policies, such as mixed-tenure development, can enable both social and economic returns.

Findings

The research, conducted pre-COVID-19, found policy options exist that can unlock more inclusive conceptualisations of value, and shift the reliance on land value in the program logic of public housing renewal. It also highlights a consistency of views across stakeholders on how public housing renewal works, including state governments and private developers, as well as Community Housing Providers (CHPs) and local governments.
