Is Housing Affordable in Casey?

UPDATE: Thank you for providing your feedback. The project team will use the data to create a Draft Strategy for the community to provide further comment on.

________________________________________________________________________________________

The City of Casey is conducting a survey to help us understand Casey's local housing situation, financial stress levels and needs. This will help inform us as we develop a Social and Affordable Housing strategy.

Why are we talking about this?

Access to safe, adequate, affordable housing fulfills the basic human need for shelter. It is essential for health, well-being and economic security.

High housing costs relative to incomes can result in rental or mortgage stress and homelessness.

In the City of Casey, it is estimated that:

  • over 1 in 3 households earn very low or low incomes,
  • 1 in 5 Casey households paying a mortgage experience mortgage stress,
  • over 1 in 3 renting households experience rental stress,
  • people counted as homeless increased 37 per cent between 2011 and 2016, a total of 1,280 people.
