What is the Kit for?

The NSW Local Government Housing Kit has been created to help councils understand housing needs and issues in their region, and to formulate appropriate responses to those needs using a strategic approach, accessible information and practical applications.

Using its statutory powers and resources, local government can significantly improve housing outcomes in the community through its influential role in planning, development and construction. Exercising these functions can deliver additional housing, guide the form of that housing and influence the cost of housing production. Housing outcomes are also influenced by many other council activities- such as rate setting, infrastructure pricing and community service delivery.

This document is a work in progress and is subject to continuous review based on user feedback. Data is also updated whenever appropriate.
