Join us to learn how your organisation can embark on the journey of continuous improvement to earn accreditation.

Alan Johnson of The Salvation Army will present on ‘Estimating future demand for social housing’

Kindly sponsored by Harrison and Grierson

About Alan Johnson

Alan Johnson has spent almost 30 years working in housing.This work has involved research and analysis, establishing and running non-government housing organisations, protesting about housing issues and actually building houses.He has degrees in planning and economics from Auckland University and worked for over 10 years in Auckland local government in planning and strategy roles. Alan currently works as a social policy analyst for The Salvation Army’s Social Policy & Parliamentary Unit based in South Auckland.

How many state houses do we need in Auckland?

Released documents suggest that Government is planning for around 24,000 to 25,000 state owned housing units across Auckland and that these will be supplemented by perhaps 1000 units provided by third parties such as community housing organisations.These figures are close to what has been provided in Auckland for the past decade or so and take no account of Auckland’s rapidly growing population or its burgeoning shortage of affordable housing.

This presentation will consider the question of how much social housing is needed in Auckland. However, answering such a question is not straight forward. It relies on various assumptions or propositions around what is an appropriate role for Government to play in housing markets, and the best form of housing assistance to offer.

In answering this question this presentation will briefly critique the Government’s ideological stance around housing in Auckland. It will offer a reframing of solutions to the challenge of providing adequate housing for Auckland’s benefit-reliant and working poor householders.

To be held at Harrison and Grierson, level 1 Dilworth House, 71 Great South Rd, Epsom, Auckland
