Driving transport infrastructure to deliver more

It’s been an incredibly busy few months in our advocacy work to support the delivery of more affordable and social (public and community) housing connected with transport infrastructure. 

In late 2023, Shelter engaged Professor Gary Cox to undertake research in response to the NSW Government announcement on the Transport Oriented Development (TOD) Program. The research explored opportunities to alleviate housing supply shortages while delivering a percentage of affordable, public and social housing connected within the TOP program. The project was aimed at identifying and recommending practical measures to delivered social and affordable housing as part of the TOD initiatives.

On the 11 March, Shelter NSW made a submission on the Draft TOD program to the Department of Planning, Homes, and Infrastructure. Much of this submission was informed by the Cox/Shelter report which can be accessed via the links below.
