City of Parramatta Council released its Affordable Housing Discussion Paper in May 2017. This paper was the product of research on the critical issue of housing affordability and a community survey on the subject that was undertaken during April and May this year.

Council received 19 submissions to the Affordable Housing Discussion Paper. A summary of the key points raised in these submissions and Council officer’s response is provided here.

Council has now prepared a draft Affordable Housing Policy. At its meeting on 10 July 2017, Council resolved to place the draft Affordable Housing Policy on public exhibition in conjunction with Council’s draft VPA Policy. Council resolved to exhibit the draft VPA Policy on 13 June 2017 (Page 80) subject to further changes. The final draft VPA Policy will be made available at the commencement of the formal public exhibition period.

We welcome your feedback on the draft Affordable Housing Policy. You can download the draft Policy here and you can make a submission by emailing us at housingaffordability@cityofparramatta.nsw.gov.au

Details of the public exhibition period will be confirmed shortly.
