Local Housing Strategy

We invite your feedback on our draft Local Housing Strategy which identifies high level housing needs and areas of opportunity unique to our current and growing community.



What is being proposed?

The Local Housing Strategy identifies what makes parts of the Inner West more or less suitable for housing development, and when and what types of housing might be delivered.

Where might new housing be located to benefit the community? What types of housing might suit a location in 10 or 20 years? Council’s draft Local Housing Strategy considers these important questions. We invite you to view the draft Strategy and provide your feedback.
