This new guide, Unlocking the Doors: Legal & financial pathways to Resident-Led housing in Australia, was recently launched in draft form and is for people wanting to set up collaborative housing in Australia.

The guide was funded by a City of Sydney Knowledge Exchange Grant, was commissioned by CoHousing Australia and produced by:

  • Caitlin Mcgee, Institute of Sustainable Futures, University of Technology, Sydney
  • Dr Matt Daly, Sustainable Building Research Centre, University of Wollongong

It is based on research and consultation with resident groups and various experts in the field including us!

The hope is that the guide becomes used by community and resident groups like a workbook that can be used and tested thoroughly.

The authors want want it to be a circular guide where your experience of using it is fed back to update and improve on so that all cohousing and collaborative housing groups can benefit.
