Affordable Housing

The City of Nelson produced its Affordable Housing Strategy in 2010. Informed by a study of housing needs, it laid out 10 objectives and many more actions for Nelson to undertake to improve the housing situation for those who face the most significant housing challenges. The Strategy spans market and non-market housing solutions.

The Strategy was updated in 2014 to reflect the latest trends and work on housing in the city. The update is composed of two parts:

  1. Housing Needs Update: this study presents the latest on the housing situations experienced by Nelson residents; and
  2. Housing Strategies Update: this document updates the Affordable Housing Strategy to the year 2014.
