DRAFT SINGLETON LOCAL HOUSING STRATEGY 2041

The Draft Singleton Local Housing Strategy 2041 is on public exhibition from Monday 25 July 2022 to Sunday 4 September 2022 and Council is seeking your feedback.

 What is the Draft Local Housing Strategy 2041?

The Draft Local Housing Strategy 2041 is a strategic document which will set the 20-year vision for housing in our local government area and outline where and how new homes are best to be developed. The Draft Local Housing Strategy 2041 is supported by the Singleton Local Strategic Planning Statement, enabling Council to align the vision of our local area with the housing objectives and targets established in the Hunter Regional Plan.

Council will use the Local Housing Strategy 2041 to inform future actions and land use decision making for housing throughout the local government area. 

 The Draft Local Housing Strategy 2041 is available for viewing in hard copy at Council’s Administration Building or download the document below.
