A better housing future for South Australia

Our Housing Future 2020-2030 is a 10-year plan for a better housing future for South Australia.

The success of the strategy will depend on partnerships between all parts of the housing sector, including the construction and development sector, government and non-government organisations. Housing customers and the broader community will also have an important role to play as we seek to put the customer at the centre.

The strategy contains clear actions for all partners in the housing sector, including government and non-government, to work together to contribute to meeting the level of need highlighted in the findings of the Australian Housing and Urban Research Institute (AHURI) report, which you can read below.  The strategy includes actions to increase the supply of affordable housing, with 20,000 affordable housing outcomes over 10 years, directly in response to the findings of the AHURI report. It also includes a range of actions to improve housing pathways and modernise the social housing system, to help current social housing tenants on moderate incomes to access other housing options (including affordable home ownership) where possible, making social housing available to those in our communities who need it most, for the time that they need it.
