Affordable Housing Policy Review

Municipality of Chatham-Kent
Project status: complete

J Consulting Group, in partnership with Vink Consulting, completed a comprehensive review of over 30 tools and options available to municipalities to encourage the development of affordable housing. Policy options were evaluated based on costs, impact and implementation. This research informed a series of recommendations including options for pursuing or encouraging the development of affordable housing in Chatham-Kent; potential incentive options and tools that Chatham-Kent should consider; and specific policies to assist Chatham-Kent in working towards its adopted targets for affordable housing; and actions towards securing other government-owned surplus properties for the development of affordable housing.
