Thank you for having your say on the draft Housing Strategy

Housing is more than just shelter.

It is a place for social connection, wellbeing and economic prosperity for many. We need to ensure that our policies and planning regulations provide for the diverse housing needs for our community now and into the future.

Neighbourhood character is one of the key considerations in developing a housing strategy. To enhance and protect our neighbourhood character, Council developed and adopted the Neighbourhood Character Strategy (NCS) in December 2023. The Housing Strategy and the NCS will work together to help balance housing growth and protection of neighbourhood character. You can read more about the adopted Neighbourhood Character Strategy 2023 here.
