Planning and Housing Supply

What Are the Optimal Policy Settings for Delivering a Stable Supply of Affordable Homes?

A Conversation With Policy Makers and Practitioners


  • Professor Nick Gallent, Head of the Bartlett School of Planning, University College London
  • Professor Rebecca L.H. Chiu, Head of the Department of Urban Planning and Design, and Director of the Centre of Urban Studies and Urban Planning of the University of Hong Kong
  • Professor Nicole Gurran, Director Urban Housing Lab@Sydney, University of Sydney
  • Dr Louise Crabtree, Institute for Culture and Society, Western Sydney University
  • Chaired by Dr Dallas Rogers, School of Social Sciences and Psychology and Institute for Culture and Society, Western Sydney University

Drawing on some of the research contained in a forthcoming book, Professors Nick Gallent and Rebecca Chiu will provide some insights into the political and policy making parameters defining the delivery of housing supply overall and affordable housing in particular, in the two very different contexts of London and Hong Kong. Dr Louise Crabtree will discuss current housing issues in Sydney and the Parramatta local government area in particular, and Professor Gurran will reflect on similarities and differences to the different constraints and opportunities facing planners involved in the delivery of new housing supply in Sydney. Dr Dallas Rogers will chair the session and facilitate a discussion of these issues between panellists and attendees.

This event is jointly hosted by the University of Sydney's Urban Housing Lab, the Institute for Culture and Society at Western Sydney University, and the School of Social Sciences and Psychology at Western Sydney University.
