Council unveils a plan to deliver 4,400 new homes


At the Ordinary Council meeting held on Wednesday 26 June 2024 Council endorsed the Draft Local Housing Strategy for Public Exhibition for a period of 28 days from Thursday 27 June to Wednesday 24 July.

The Draft LHS is a local planning strategy that will guide the delivery of housing in the Armidale Region over the next 20 years. The strategy builds on the longer-term land use planning vision established in the Local Strategic Planning Statement: Advancing our region: Toward 50,000 (LSPS) and has been developed through a review of development, housing stock, housing trends, population trends and planning provisions.

The LHS is shaped around six planning priorities that will guide the delivery of housing in the region over the next 20 years.

Planning Priority 1 - Diversity and Density

Increase diversity and density in housing by encouraging different housing types and tenures

Planning Priority 2 - Sustainable and Resilient

Promote a compact settlement to utilise existing infrastructure and provide housing that is resilient to social and natural changes

Planning Priority 3 - Character and Livability

Ensure the regions unique character is maintained and livability enhanced

Planning Priority 4 - Affordable

Increase the supply of affordable housing in the region

Planning Priority 5 - Responsive

Provide housing that responds to the needs of the community

Planning Priority 6 - Supply and Infrastructure

Ensure the supply of diverse and well serviced unconstrained land and housing in appropriate locations

Submissions are invited and must be addressed to the General Manager, Armidale Regional Council, PO Box 75A, Armidale, NSW 2350, or sent by email to council@armidale.nsw.gov.au and marked 'Submission on Draft Local Housing Strategy'.
