A Strategy to meet the future housing needs of our growing community.

Background

The City of Kalamunda advertised the draft Local housing Strategy (Strategy) for public comment from 9 April to 29 May 2020. The draft Strategy considers all land Urban and Rural under the Metropolitan Region Scheme (MRS) and considers urban land rezoned Residential, Mixed Use, Urban Development and rural land zoned Special Rural, Residential Bushland, Rural Conservation, Rural Landscape Interest, Rural Agriculture and Rural Composite.

The Strategy looks to increase the quality and diversity in housing types, support more sustainable features, promote active transport, provide safe active streets for residents and is also an opportunity to identify opportunities for improvement in the current local planning framework.

The draft Strategy is reviewed every five years and would supersede the existing Local Housing Strategy 2014.

Promotional and Engagement Activities
