Managing affordable housing developed under ARHSEPP
Affordable rental housing which has been approved using planning incentives under the State Environmental Planning Policy (Affordable Rental Housing) 2009 must be rented as affordable housing to very low, low or moderate households for at least 10 years and must be managed by a registered community housing provider.
Rent may be set in one of two ways:
- At least 20% below market rent for an NRAS eligible household (NRAS dwellings must use this rent setting approach)
- 25 - 30% of income as rent for very low, low or moderate income households.
It is recommended that these properties be managed according to the NSW Affordable Housing Guidelines as a best practice guide for delivering affordable housing in NSW.
New generation boarding houses developed under the ARHSEPP do not need to be managed by a community housing provider.
