The Northern Rivers faces significant challenges in terms of housing affordability and homelessness. Recent figures suggest that Tweed Heads was the 8th least affordable housing city in the world, that Byron Shire had the least affordable private rents of anywhere in NSW, with Ballina, Clarence Valley and Tweed Shire also in the top nine least affordable areas in the state (North Coast Community Housing Annual Report 2017-2018).
Last night’s event discussed “Living without homes – how can we fix the regions housing crisis?” and was facilitated by Adele Wessell from Southern Cross University.
