Affordable Housing Strategy

City of White Rock
White Rock, BC

The City of White Rock retained Terra Housing Consultants, in partnership with Cooper Planning and Development Consultants, to develop a draft Affordable Housing Strategy.  The Terra Team focused on priority groups identified by the City, which included low income households, the elderly, disabled and special needs persons, as well as the homeless.  The report was developed as two documents - a Background Study, which provided the local context and highlighted municipal tools in addressing affordable housing, and an Affordable Housing Strategy. A Draft Strategy, presented to the Committee and members of the public in a workshop, generated much discussion and informed the final version of the Strategy, which provided future direction for city policy and programs.
