The Local Housing Strategy was approved 24 March 2014 and focused on more diverse housing types and more efficient use of the existing and new infrastructure, community services, schools and public transport. The Strategy also provided a rationale for
careful and strategic housing density changes around town centres and other focus areas which led to the implementation of Local Planning Scheme Amendment 82 – Dual Density Codes.
At the Ordinary Council Meeting 24 March 2020 a new draft Local Housing Strategy 2020-2025 was adopted for public advertising. The draft Strategy is a future plan to ensure we can meet the growing needs of everyone in our community, from our young families,
to the aged. The draft Strategy looks to increase the quality and diversity in housing types, support more sustainable features, promote active transport and provide safe active streets for residents.
Reviewed every five years, the draft Strategy is also an opportunity to identify opportunities for improvement in the current local planning framework.
The draft Strategy is open for comment 9 April – 29 May 2020 after which Council will consider submissions and the revised final Strategy document.Provide your feedback on the draft Strategy via https://engage.kalamunda.wa.gov.au/local-housing-strategyPublic comments close 5pm Friday 29 May 2020.
