The limited quantity of new housing in Slovenia in the last decade and the recognised public interest for solving housing problems imply different procedures in providing adequate houses for various social groups. The article presents present development issues concerning housing development in Slovenia that lead to necessary additions to housing types. Simultaneously modernisation of planning documentation, amendments to the national housing programme and changes to the organisation structure of professional involvement have to be undertaken. A competition project for the design of Sneberje, a suburban housing neighbourhood near Ljubljana, illustrates the issues.
