“As the Northern Beaches community grows and changes, residents will be able to the find the right housing that meets their needs, lifestyles and budgets.” Northern Beaches Council
The NSW Government requires all councils to prepare a local housing strategy to address the short-term housing targets identified by the State Government.
Council’s local housing strategy outlines how and where housing will be delivered to meet the community’s needs now and into the future.
The strategy considers population growth trends and change, household size and mix and lifestyle issues including sustainability and building resilience; provision and maintenance of green space; plus access and availability of public services such as schools, transport and health care. It also looks at housing diversity including boarding houses and seniors housing, and social and affordable housing.
New housing development will be focused in and near centres where people can easily access transportation, shops and services. Urban area identified for development include those with a one-kilometre radius around Brookvale, Dee Why, Mona Vale and Narrabeen.
