Local Housing Strategy

The City’s Local Housing Strategy (2020) provides direction on where and when future housing growth will occur to 2036 and beyond, consistent with the strategic priorities on housing contained in the Central City District Plan.

The Local Housing Strategy provides the evidence of significant forecasted housing growth, most of which is high-density (apartment) development occurring in growth precincts led by NSW Government agencies or the City. It also sequences this growth based on delivery of key dependencies.

The Local Housing Strategy also informed the housing vision in the City’s Local Strategic Planning Statement – City Plan 2036.  

The Local Housing Strategy was approved by the Secretary, Department of Planning, Industry and Environment on 29 July 2021. You can access the Secretary’s letter of approval at this link: Local Housing Strategies Tracker | Planning Portal - Department of Planning and Environment (

Applicants planning proposals must demonstrate consistency with the Local Housing Strategy.
