June 2021 update:

The survey is now closed, and submissions are now being reviewed. Thank you to all who provided feedback.

May 2021 consultation:

The interim Affordable Housing Policy is due for reconsideration and minor amendments are proposed to provide further clarity to the document and to outline how affordable housing can be achieved.

The Draft Affordable Housing Policy has been prepared to update the interim policy and outlines how affordable housing will be achieved in the Cumberland local government area (LGA).  It supports provision of affordable housing in the LGA and will enable Council to achieve this outcome.

We invite you to have your say and encourage you to view the proposed Draft Affordable Housing Policy from our document library.

During this community consultation period, the residents are encouraged to submit their comments on the proposal. We are receiving submissions from 10 May 2021 to 7 June 2021.
