Access to secure, appropriate, affordable and well designed housing is vital to peoplesí health and wellbeing. A strong housing market that meets community needs can be an important source of wealth creation and contribute to the social, economic and environmental sustainability of the municipality.
Council is preparing a Municipal Housing Strategy which will enable Council to plan for the sustainable supply of quality housing and accommodation that meets the needs of all current and future residents in Greater Dandenong.
Housing in Greater Dandenong: Briefing Paper
To support and inform a Municipal Housing Strategy, Council undertook a comprehensive housing research and consultation program to identify the key housing challenges and opportunities facing the City of Greater Dandenong and its community. The key findings from this housing research program are summarised in Councilís Housing in Greater Dandenong: Briefing Paper.
