The Conference is to be hosted by the NSW Federation of Housing Associations in Sydney on 28-29 July, 2016.

The theme of the 2016 event is 'What would it take to create 100,000 new affordable homes in NSW?

Mr Brian Boyd welcomes the challenge.

PAYCE Managing Director, Brian Boyd welcomed the opportunity for PAYCE to be part of the event, both as a Platinum Sponsor and participant.

"It is well documented that there is a large housing shortage in NSW, especially in the affordable housing sector," said Mr Brian Boyd.

"There is a real need to escalate the conversation around increasing affordable housing across NSW.

"The good news is that it is on everyone's radar and governments are responding as evidenced by the NSW Government's Social and Affordable Housing Fund, Future Directions for Social Housing and Communities Plus," continued Mr Boyd.

"As a major developer in the Sydney area, PAYCE wants to work with and support the community housing sector by providing specialised development advice and innovative solutions leading to best practice for the increase in supply of affordable housing and social outcomes.

"The conference is most timely and can act as a catalyst for a range of actions, such as the release of land, funding options and infrastructure incentives," concluded Mr Boyd.

Global experience brings Invaluable input from overseas experts.

The conference organisers have secured several renowned international speakers.

PAYCE General Manager, Dominic Sullivan said the input from the overseas experts will be invaluable. "I look forward to hearing of their global experiences and what can be done in the government, private and NGO sectors to address this issue here in NSW," he said.

"The conference also provides PAYCE with an opportunity to showcase its Washington Park project in Riverwood, where an under-developed and under-utilised housing estate has been transformed into a seamless and integrated housing model, with social enterprise examples and with measurable social impact."
