ISV Resources on Redevelopment
Inner Sydney Voice Magazine runs a broad range of articles written by experts in their field. These articles cover a broad range of topics relevant to inner Sydney including housing, urban issues, civil society and human services. While sometimes we produce special issues, like the one on Redeveloping Public Housing or Making the NDIS work for everyone, there are also important standalone articles in other issues of the magazine relevant to that topic that are often forgotten about even though they are as relevant today as they were when they were published. ISV has grouped articles together by topics and provide a research / reading list for those wishing to better understand some of the issues faced in inner Sydney. It is particularly helpful on issues covering the redevelopment of Waterloo public housing.
