Singleton Council offers city conveniences with a rural feel. Our area benefits from easy access to nearby amenities while also boasting world renowned vineyards and diverse rural landscapes. In close proximity is the Newcastle Airport, University of Newcastle and the Hunter Expressway which easily links Singleton to Sydney and the North Coast.

The Singleton Local Housing Strategy 2041 sets the roadmap for decision making around housing in our Local Government Area to acknowledge and take into consideration the characteristics which make our area a unique and attractive place to live while facilitating housing to respond to our communities’ needs.

The aim of the Local Housing Strategy is to tell the story of housing from the current situation around housing, how our existing zoned areas can accommodate future demand and the housing gaps we need to address. Feedback received through consultation and workshops with the community has informed the development of the Local Housing Strategy and is reflected in our principles and actions for housing over the coming decades.
