Our housing and homelessness response

Council’s Housing and Homelessness Action Plan was endorsed in July 2023.

The Housing and Homelessness Action Plan 2023 reinforces Council’s commitment to facilitating affordable and diverse housing options and to build our capacity to respond to homelessness and support community-led initiatives.

The Action Plan focuses on five key pillars – delivery, facilitation, advocacy, building capacity and building our knowledge.

Council’s key priorities include:

  • Utilising Council land and/or buildings as affordable residential housing options for key workers currently being displaced by escalating rents and prices for housing
  • Discounting fees and concessions for community organisations
  • Supporting community-led initiatives
  • Facilitating the efforts of the State Government and community housing providers to deliver social and affordable housing projects.
