Abstract

This report describes practical ways to increase the supply of affordable-accessible housing, which refers to lower priced homes located in areas where access to basic services and activities is affordable due to good transport options and accessible land use. This typically consists of lower-priced apartments, townhouses, duplexes, small-lot single-family and accessory suites located in neighborhoods with shops, schools, healthcare and jobs that are easy to reach by walking, bicycling and public transit. This helps achieve numerous economic, social and environmental objectives. Demand for affordable-accessible housing is growing. Some current transport and land use policies discourage such development, leading to a shortage in many communities, particularly in growing cities. Various policy and planning reforms described in this report can increase affordable-accessible housing development.
