Management Plan for Housing on Kangaroo Island
A need for improved community housing infrastructure and associated services has been identified as a priority in reports prepared by the Kangaroo Island Futures Authority.
In addition, there are around 300 jobs associated with the $182 million of proposed and approved developments taking place on Kangaroo Island over the next three - five years. Temporary, short and long-term housing will be required to accommodate the new additions to the workforce.
For these reasons the Commissioner has identified a need to improve the provision of housing infrastructure and associated services to meet the complex needs of Kangaroo Island through a Management Plan.
The Commissioner's Office is currently finalising an Implementation Plan that responds to the priorities and proposals set out in the Management Plan. A Report has been prepared by the Commissioner's Office that includes research on KI's housing diversity, affordability and availability. The Kangaroo Island Housing Diversity, Affordability and Availability Report (PDF, 3736 KB) is available here.
