Draft Housing Strategy

Council has identified the preparation of a Municipal Housing Strategy as a high priority project, and work is underway to progress the project.

The Housing Strategy aims to develop a strategic framework that can guide the provision of appropriate types and sizes of housing in appropriate locations, to meet the growing and changing housing needs of Stonnington's current and future communities.

Key objectives include:

  • Understand current Federal, State and local policy context and how it relates to housing
  • Understand changing demographic trends and patterns and how they relate to housing
  • Examine the different types and mix of housing currently existing within Stonnington
  • Examine housing affordability issues
  • Examine heritage and character protection issues
  • Examine infrastructure and servicing needs.

The Housing Strategy will develop a vision for the preferred residential future in Stonnington and identify appropriate locations for different types and sizes of housing within Stonnington in the short, medium and long term.

Community engagement is expected to occur in early-mid 2019.
