By August 13, 2019 No Comments

Cumberland Council has engaged JSA to prepare an Affordable Housing Study to examine and detail the most effective strategies and mechanisms that Council can employ to protect and increase affordable housing for key target groups in the LGA. The Affordable Housing Study will inform the preparation of an Affordable Housing Policy and will provide the evidence base for an Affordable Housing Contributions Scheme that meets the requirements of State Environmental Planning Policy 70 – Affordable Housing (Revised Schemes)(SEPP 70) and Section 7.32 of the Environmental Planning and Assessment Act, 1979.
