This project investigates good practices for managing Australia’s public and community housing assets. To a large extent the report concerns the identification of existing practices as an attempt to build a picture of asset management in public and community housing across Australia. But a report such as this cannot merely report current practice; in the attempt to search out good practices, or even best practice, external trends (local and international literature) and opinion (of those involved in managing public and community housing) necessarily must be pursued. The report addresses not just good practices but emerging trends and related opinions. Underlying this is the identification of an emerging contextual or structural problem—a dichotomy of views of the role and purpose of asset management within a social and community housing policy context, between the extremes of governance and service provision.
