Affordable Housing Contributions Scheme for Lismore City Council

By 8 November 2023No Comments

Lismore City Council currently has a strong need for affordable housing in the Region which has been exacerbated by the recent devastating floods. Council acknowledges that without intervention this lack of supply will not be met and has engaged JSA to assist in the preparation of an Affordable Housing Contribution Scheme which will provide a planning framework under which Lismore City Council can receive developer contributions for the specific purpose of affordable housing provision. JSA will build on research and data provided in the Lismore Affordable and Diverse Housing Strategy and carry out viability testing on areas identified in the Growth and Realignment Plan and prepare a draft Affordable Housing Contribution Scheme and the accompanying work and reports necessary, including a Planning Proposal to amend the Local Environmental Plan.
