Numerous of low cost housing units and public housing units have been built. However, the data on who get the units and who are waiting in the list are difficult to trace due to the improper book keeping (record) albeit computerised. Difficulties in portraying the number of households that have been allocated in new low cost housing schemes and vacant public housing units lead to the blanket planning policy, that requires all housing developers of 5 acres and more to provide 30% of dwelling units for the low cost category, be imposed on developers. As numbers of low cost units built, the number of squatter households also increased. This paper will highlight the stock and flows model by which local authorities will be able to match between the number of low cost units built and the number of low-income households within a particular period. Thus, the blanket policy does not apply to all developers when most of eligible low-income households have been resettled. Gradually, the zero squatter houses in urban areas can be achieved.
