Examining the Need for Affordable Housing in Cumberland Council

By May 19, 2020 No Comments

We are working with Cumberland Council to prepare an Affordable Housing Study that will identify the need for affordable housing for different groups and examine the most effective strategies and mechanisms that Council can employ to protect and increase affordable housing in the Cumberland community. The Affordable Housing Study will provide the evidence base for the preparation of a detailed Affordable Housing Contributions Scheme as to fulfil the requirements of Section 7.32(3)b of the Environmental Planning and Assessment Act 1979 and State Environmental Planning Policy No 70 – Affordable Housing (Revised Schemes) (SEPP 70).
