'CRISIS': Housing affordability and a shortage of social housing has prompted the council to develop a co-investment initiative with the state government to ensure more suitable social and affordable housing is developed in the city.

An extra $12 million could be invested in social housing in Newcastle over the next three years as part of a pilot co-investment initiative between the council and NSW government that could be replicated across the state.
