The Drivers and Outcomes of Re-investment in Low Density Suburban Housing Markets

The Drivers and Outcomes of Re-investment in Low Density Suburban Housing Markets

Focusing on the ageing middle ring suburbs built in post-war decades, this research will explore the process of reinvestment in lower density housing which has so far been largely neglected by both scholars and urban planners, yet which has become a significant factor in the incremental renewal of these areas with implications for their socio-economic stability as well as their adaptation to improved environmental standards. Using both quantitative and qualitative research methods and Sydney as an exemplar, the project will establish the rate and scale of renewal and the drivers of this process from both the supply and demand side of the market.
