Council is developing a new Housing Strategy

Council is preparing a draft Housing Strategy 2024 (‘the Housing Strategy’ or ‘the Strategy’) which will help us to plan for future housing demand to meet the needs of our diverse community.

The Housing Strategy will (among other matters):

  • Provide the context of housing trends, issues and policies that impact Nillumbik including local, metropolitan and national matters.
  • Examine Nillumbik’s existing housing and future housing needs with consideration of matters such as neighbourhood character.
  • Set a vision for how Council will address housing needs over the next 15 years.
  • Provide a Housing Framework Plan that identifies change areas in accordance with State government requirements for housing strategies.

A Community Reference Group (CRG) will be appointed to provide input at key points as the project proceeds to help inform the draft Strategy.

A maximum of 12 people will be appointed to the Community Reference Group and CRG membership should ideally reflect the wide range of housing demand and experience across the Shire’s residential areas.

The EOI process has now closed. Applicants will be notified on or after Friday, 15 September on the outcome.
