Draft Housing Strategy to 10 November Council Meeting

Next Tuesday night, Council will consider a report on the draft Mosman Local Housing Strategy (MLHS) that will address recent consultation undertaken and recommend that the draft Strategy be endorsed without change.

Five submissions were received in response to the six-week public exhibition held during 17 August to 27 September 2020. Matters raised in submissions relate to the development application process, demographic projections, housing capacity and supply, and the impact of population growth on local public schools. These matters are considered in the report.

The draft MLHS is a plan for housing Mosman’s population from now to 2036-2041. It considers:

  • projected housing demand and population change in the municipality,
  • how housing growth is to be managed,
  • the right locations for additional housing supply, and
  • the delivery of housing supply targets set by the Greater Sydney Commission.

All councils are required to prepare a local housing strategy for their area to provide a locally relevant response to meeting the growing demand for housing in Greater Sydney.

If endorsed by Council, the draft MLHS would then be submitted to the NSW Department of Planning, Industry and Environment for approval.
