Affordable housing

Council is committed to addressing the housing affordability challenge in our community.  We are also seeking to match housing to our household types and climate.

Actions we're taking include:

  • Using Council land to deliver affordable housing
  • Negotiating use of State land for affordable housing
  • Connecting private landholders with affordable housing developers
  • Advocating for the housing needs of the shire

These actions connect to the key pillars in our Council Plan 2021-2025(PDF, 4MB). Some actions are large-scale, longer-term activities that will take time to come to fruition.
