Affordable Housing

The NSW Government has introduced major changes to planning laws to stimulate development of more affordable housing.

The changes are part of the State Environmental Planning Policy SEPP (Affordable Rental Housing) 2009 and include developer incentives to create more housing near regular transport.

Council recognises that access to secure; appropriate and affordable housing is not only a basic requirement for all people, it is necessary to meet the needs of our growing population and existing residents.

Council is committed to working in partnership with other levels of government to advocate and help develop planning controls that enable different types of housing.
