South Australia’s Strategic Plan is comprised of 100 targets. These targets are specific and measurable and enable us to measure our progress towards achieving the Plan’s visions and goals.
Each target is reported on through this section of the website. Data is analysed and uploaded as it becomes available.
Target:7. Affordable housing:
South Australia leads the nation over the period to 2020 in the proportion of homes sold or built that are affordable by low and moderate income households
Since the publication of the 2012 Progress Report updated data for this target’s key measure is not available. Updated data will be published when it is available. Discussions are in place between DCSI and Renewal SA about the transferring or responsibilities for updating this target. In December 2014 the State Government announced changes to the governance of the South Australian Housing Trust (SAHT). Relevant legislation, including the South Australian Housing Trust Act 1995, the Community Housing Providers (National Law) (South Australia) Act 2013, and the Housing Improvement Act 1940, was gazetted to the Minister for Housing and Urban Development.
The data above and the comments below are from the 2012 Progress Report.
In 2009–10 (the baseline year), South Australia was the fifth ranked state or territory for the proportion of homes built or sold that were affordable by low and moderate income households (53.9% of homes). In 2010–11, South Australia was again the fifth ranked state or territory (37.6% of homes sold or built that were affordable), leading the Audit Committee to rate progress as ‘steady or no movement’.
