Abstract

This study investigated the key drivers of Australian housing supply responsiveness; including price, topographical constraints, climate, existing land uses and planning regulations; and considered policy development options to improve the scale and speed of new housing supply responses. The key drivers of housing supply responsiveness were modelled to determine their relative influence.

Keywords: government policy, social housing, home ownership
