City Limits - August Housing Update

Wednesday, 19 August 2020 - 9:00am to 10:00am

Join Karina and Howard (Friends of Public Housing) this week as we discuss recent housing issues for Victoria, including:

- the ombudsman inquiry and damning reports by community legal groups regarding the July towers lockdown, 
- the parliamentary inquiry into the Victorian government's response to COVID-19 ,
young renters struggling within the private housing system,
a push to build "affordable" housing in Port Phillip,
- homeless people in Victorian hotels to be put up in private rentals ($150 million), and
- delays in the development of private homes on a former North Melbourne public housing site that could lead to $10,000/day government payout.

Later in the show [41:48], we go to audio from last month's Wednesday breakfast where David Kelly, a research fellow at the Centre for Urban Research at RMIT explains the historical shortfalls leading to the public housing lockdown last month. He details the history of Melbourne’s policies, the successes in the past, and what directions housing should take into the future.

Wednesday 9:00am to 10:00am
Urban environment issues, analysing government services, both federal and state and local campaigns.
