Housing models research

We are researching national and international affordable housing models.

Echelon Planning have been engaged to deliver research papers for Byron Shire. Echelon Planning has a proven track record of innovative research relating to housing models and how affordable options can be delivered on the ground.

Alternative Housing Models research paper 

Echelon's Alternative Housing Models research paper and updated Addendum Report set out a summary of our Shire's key housing needs and an analysis of alternate housing models, such as:

  • co-operative housing
  • rent to buy
  • others aimed at making housing more affordable. 

They examine how these models might be adapted for the Byron Shire for future housing options.
