Housing Strategy adopted by Future Melbourne Committee

December 11, 2014

Our Homes for People housing strategy was adopted at a Future Melbourne Committee (FMC) on Tuesday 9 December, after some changes were made to the final strategy.

The FMC resolved to endorse the Homes for People Housing Strategy 2014-18 subject to the following amendments:

  • Deleting Action 3 regarding inclusionary zoning on private land.
  • Extending the time frame for reaching the affordable homes target of 1721 in Goal 1 from 2021 to 2024.
  • Reducing the affordable homes target on Council-owned land in Action 1 from “up to 20 per cent to “up to 15 per cent”.
  • Request that management further review the strategy when Commonwealth-State arrangements on housing are finalised.

To read the full FMC resolution and listen to the audio from the meeting visit the Future Melbourne Committee documentation page 9 December 2014.

The strategy will now be amended to reflect the FMC resolution and made public in early 2015 on Participate Melbourne.
