Affordable Housing ImageIt is essential that growth management plans provide for the development of affordable housing, both owner-occupied and rental, to meet existing and forecasted housing demand. These objectives may be met through market-driven approaches that foster a wide-range of urban, suburban and rural housing choices at all price levels to suit a diverse population.
