Affordable social housing - looking to the future, how can we convince developers to allocate for this within their developments?

A key component of this project is a direct response to changes made in the Victorian Planning and Environment Act 2018.

A new objective has been added: “to facilitate the provision of affordable housing in Victoria”.

Affirming the use of section 173 for voluntary affordable housing agreements, it further states “ …a Responsible Authority may enter into an agreement with an owner of land for the development or provision of land in relation to affordable housing”.

This project will provide recommendations to Council for consideration.
