Inner West Council draft Integrated Transport and Local Housing Strategies on Exhibition until 28 July 2019

Inner West Council is inviting feedback from the community on our
Local Housing Strategy and Integrated Transport Strategy.

Local Housing Strategy 

The Local Housing Strategy identifies what makes parts of the Inner West more or less suitable for housing development, and when and what types of housing might be delivered.

Where might new housing be located to benefit the community?
What types of housing might suit a location in 10 or 20 years?

View the draft Local Housing Strategy and provide your feedback by 28 July 2019 at

Integrated Transport Strategy

Council’s draft Integrated Transport Strategy will guide planning for how people move around the Inner West in the future. The draft Strategy proposes:
  • A transport hierarchy that puts people first
  • A set of values as the basis for future transport decisions
  • Priorities for future transport in the Inner West
  • Seven principles for transport in the Inner West
  • Seven key projects
  • Innovative ideas for the future

  1. AIHW media release 18 Jul 2019

    The report, Housing assistance in Australia found that the number of social housing dwellings remained relatively stable in 2017-18 at 436,200 — an increase of less than 1% over the previous 12 months.

    The report also details the continued trend of an increasing proportion of social housing stock being managed by community housing organisations.

    ‘The number of community housing dwellings more than doubled between 2008-09 and 2017-18 from 39,800 to 87,800, partly due to the transfer of ownership or management of public housing dwellings to community organisations,’ said AIHW spokesperson Mr Matthew James.

    The number of public housing dwellings decreased from 336,500 in 2008-09 to 316,200 in 2017–18.

    While the stock of social housing has increased 6% since 2008-09, it has not kept pace with the growth in the number of households. The number of social housing dwellings per 100 households declined from 5.1 per 100 households in 2007-08 to 4.6 in 2017-18.

  2. Social Infrastructure is a component of the housing strategy
    -Shopping is one of the reasons people say they need a car.

    Access to community centres, squares and parks for outdoor seating, recreation, schools, families, entertainment, restaurants ... got any ideas, experiences?

    Please include in your submissions - they will all help to ensure the Inner West has the best Transport and Housing Strategies.
    Economic Strategy will be coming out for public exhibition.

    These strategies will inform the a consolidated Inner West Local Environment Plan and Development Control Plan (Planning Instruments) which ultimately decide what get built where. The consolidated plans will will replace the three invididual council's plans, incorporate the state government decrees and make VPAs unnecessary (or so the theory goes)
