Durham Housing Review

To develop At Home in Durham, the Region initiated a Durham Housing Review – beginning in May 2010 – to address housing issues within Durham, and establish a basis for monitoring the effectiveness of the Region's policies influencing housing market conditions. It includes extensive research on the supply of housing, affordability, demographic trends, and the specialized housing needs of diverse populations–including people who are homeless, victims of domestic violence, seniors, youth, students, and residents with mental, developmental and physical disabilities.

In addition, broad community consultations were held throughout summer and fall 2013 with Durham residents, elected officials, staff, social and community agencies, education and health-care sectors, non-profit and co-operative housing providers, other levels of government, and other partners in housing. These consultations took the form of public community workshops, focus group discussions and an online survey.

The findings from the Durham Housing Review and community consultations are set out in the following five background reports:
