About affordable housing

Renewal SA is responsible for increasing the supply of affordable housing so that South Australians have opportunities to live where they want at a price they can afford.

We work with industry

affordable living issues.

15% affordable housing

Provision of 15% affordable housing is a Government of South Australia target for all new significant developments.

Various incentives are offered to encourage affordable housing outside of significant developments.

Criteria for affordable housing is published in the Government Gazette and are reviewed annually.

Development applications submitted for assessment that include affordable housing are referred to Renewal SA for advice on whether affordable housing criteria have been met.

We work with industry using these design measures to help make housing more affordable:

Statistics & reports

Housing affordability reports describe the nature of local housing supply and demand.

To help industry understand housing affordability issues, we've developed reports highlighting key housing demand and supply data.

Information about housing demand and supply is organised by local government area, as well as an overview for the state.

Information in the reports below is intended to be used to establish affordable housing demand.

The reports are also useful for market research for the residential industry to identify housing demand, as a starting point for local government research for housing plans and supply information for academics and researchers.
