1st State was pleased to be able to organise a forum between 3 organisations dealing with housing affordability on the front line ? Evolve Housing, the Common Equity Housing Limited and the Billbergia Group ? and a range of local and state government representatives, as well as other organisations in the affordable housing sector.

An open and frank discussion was had on a range of policy changes which could help to create a more affordable housing regime, while enticing developers to invest in this vital segment of the market.
