Housing Strategy for the Inner West
Recent changes to planning legislation in NSW means that the Inner West Council is required to develop a local housing strategy in consultation with the community. This strategy needs to be consistent with the Greater Sydney Commission's Greater Sydney Region Plan A Metropolis of Three Cities and the Eastern City District Plan. The Council currently has a draft housing strategy on public exhibition. We are encouraging everyone interested in housing to take a look at the documentation and submit their feedback to Council. The deadline is the 28th July.
This is an unique opportunity to be involved in the strategic direction of housing in our community. If you want to make a real impact to the types of housing development and the identification of parts of the Inner West more or less suitable for housing development, this is your chance. Please take the time to let Council know what you think of their Local Housing Strategy. This strategy will feed into the Inner West LEP that is being created right now.
If you want to talk to someone about the strategy you can turn up to one of the information sessions. Dates, venues and times are listed here.
A draft transport strategy is also on public submission so you might like to take a look at that one too.
