Growing Well: Renewing Sydney’s housing for health, wellbeing and equity
Sydney is among the world’s most expensive cities. In Sydney Local Health District alone, population is expected to increase by 40% by 2030, further exacerbating housing system stress. Government faces the interlinked challenges of enhancing housing affordability, containing urban sprawl, and renewing run-down social housing – all while creating liveable places that promote healthy lifestyles.
This scholarship will investigate government and industry responses to changing housing and service needs, while creating healthy built environments. The research will examine how disadvantaged groups and communities can share the potential health benefits of urban renewal through social inclusion.
