Abstract

Recently, governments strive to make housing affordable for residents. Affordable housing is not restricted only to the house prices, but it includes also the quality and amenities of the house. So, the main aim of this research is to develop affordable housing performance indicators (AHPI) for landed houses. It's based mainly on Mulliner and Malienes criteria for affordable housing and the concept of grow home for Friedman and Cammalleri. Taman Selasih (TS) and Taman Lukut Makmur (TLM) in Negeri Sembilan were chosen as a case study. They were constructed by Syarikat Perumahan Negara Berhad (SPNB) in the central region of Malaysia. The sample consists of 155 units in TS and 93 units in TLM. A physical survey was conducted to assess the housing affordability for TS and TLM by field observation and informal interviews with the residents. The collected data were analyzed via SPSS software. The result shows that fourteen criteria can be applied as AHPI for landed houses, namely; houses prices in relation to income, safety- incidence of crime, access to employment, access to public transport facilities, access to good quality schools, access to shopping facilities, access to health care, access to child care, access to leisure facilities, access to open green public space, quality of housing, energy efficiency, land properties and new spaces. The value of this research comes from proposing a set of criteria that could be used as affordable housing performance indicators (AHPI) to assess the performance of landed houses.
