Fairfield City Council
Fairfield City Secondary Dwellings Study
There are more than 3,900 approved secondary dwellings in Fairfield City, and they are increasingly seen as an “affordable” housing option for many Sydney-siders. Cred Consulting was engaged by Fairfield City Council to undertake research focused on people living within these dwellings (also known as ‘Granny Flats’), to identify their demographic characteristics and support their needs, as well as understand market trends across Greater Sydney.
The Fairfield City Secondary Dwelling Study (the Study) is a qualitative and quantitative assessment of people living in secondary dwellings within the Fairfield City Local Government Area (Fairfield City).
This Study provided the evidence Fairfield City needed to understand:
- demographic characteristics of people living in secondary dwellings
- the physicality of secondary dwellings in Fairfield City – type and size of dwellings, services and amenities available
- tenure and rental nature of these dwellings
- community needs of people living in these dwellings.
