Alternative Housing Model Report,
Byron Bay Shire
Byron Shire is experiencing serious housing challenges across their townships and have engaged Echelon Planning and Urban Xchange to work through how the Council can meet these challenges in delivering affordable and stable housing across the Shire. The first task includes undertaking a research project into a range of housing models which could deliver a range of housing options including live -work models, affordable housing, long term accommodation and deliberative development options. The research paper will outline how these models work and how they may be applied across the Shire.
The second part of the project includes testing of the feasibility of the models on Council owned sites which Echelon will do in partnership with Urban Xchange.
