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.

The purpose of this strategy is to articulate how Singleton Council will undertake Socio-Economic Development to ensure the future of the Singleton local government area (LGA) and its residents.

This Socio-Economic Development Strategy (SEDS) has been created to provide strategic direction to Council staff to ensure efficient and effective use of internal and external resources in our pursuit to improve the liveability of the Singleton LGA.
