The next few years are going to be key for how we design cities and how we respond to climate change.
A lack of public transport, a lack of affordable housing and a lack.residential areas.
The key to solving this will be to create a world-class city, one that works for everyone and not just the rich.
The country’s cities have been in a tailspin since the turn of the century when Australia experienced its worst urban disaster in more than 50 years.
The economic fallout of that disaster led to an unprecedented shift in how people live, work and travel.
That shift was accompanied by the creation of urban policy that has been characterized by a focus on how cities can be designed, managed and run in ways that are equitable and sustainable.
But while that shift has been a boon for the Australian economy, the country’s political leaders have been left with little room for manoeuvre.
A lack of mobility and public transportA lack the availability of affordable homes and infrastructureA lack on affordable housingAs a result, Australians are living longer, spending more and more of their time indoors, and are increasingly living in cities.
The country’s housing stock is so poor that some cities have lost out on affordable homes.
And the country has become so urbanised that it is increasingly difficult for residents to find affordable housing.
There is no affordable housing to be had in Australia’s most expensive city, Melbourne, for example.
The state of Queensland is the second most expensive place to live in Australia with an average of $1.4 million in house prices per person.
That compares to a median house price of $8,000 in the Brisbane CBD.
But a lack on housing means there is little affordable housing available to many of the countrys poorest Australians.
The most affordable housing in the country is in Sydney and Melbourne, where the median house prices are just $2,300 per person per year.
In contrast, there is a huge demand for affordable housing across Australia.
At the same time, many people are being pushed out of the suburbs and into cities by rising rents.
The result is that the housing supply is shrinking.
We are moving towards a situation where people are living in the cities and then finding it hard to get into the suburbs, which are increasingly unaffordable, or out of city centres.
There are some places where affordability can be achieved, including Sydney and Adelaide, where there is an excess of affordable rental accommodation, but this is a difficult and expensive solution to addressing Australia’s affordability crisis.
The national policy framework for managing housing affordability has been underfunded and the national housing target is set to be breached.
The Australian Institute of Criminology has warned that the national policy response will be insufficient to achieve affordability and that a significant proportion of people will continue to be priced out of Australia.
A national housing strategy that addresses the housing affordability crisis is urgently needed.
