Reconceptualising Housing Need in 21st Century Australian Housing Policy

This project investigated the usefulness of regulatory frameworks for the ‘not for profit’ housing sector in Australia. It reviewed the potential advantages and disadvantages of regulation in the light of the criticisms made of burdensome and ineffective regulation in the UK. It also examined new regulatory initiatives that have been introduced in a number of states, with the aim of reducing risk and improving quality.

Through conducting empirical research across four Australian jurisdictions and several international reviews, it sought to identify:

  • the common problems and risks that arise in not for profit agencies providing housing
  • which types of regulation work in these organisations
  • what are the problems that arise in introducing regulation
  • how the existing schemes can be extended
  • the potential benefits of establishing a national regulatory framework.
