Wyndham council is seeking community views on a proposed Affordable Housing Strategy for 2022-25.
Community members can voice their views by going to Wyndham’s council community engagement platform, The Loop
Our city will offer a variety of housing types and built environments that enhance the quality of life for residents of all ages.”.
The draft strategy sets a vision and sets goals for the board to pursue opportunities to meet Wyndham’s anticipated housing needs, support services, and find innovative and affordable housing solutions.
The approach will require partnerships between all levels of government, private sector developers and community housing organisations.
Councillor Jennie Barrera said council strives to ensure the community has access to affordable housing that meets their needs.
“Every person living in Wyndham deserves the enhanced stability and wellbeing that comes from knowing you have secure housing. Everyone deserves a home.”
Wyndham mayor Peter Maynard said a safe, connected and inclusive future is the “core of everything” at Wyndham council.
“This new draft Affordable Housing Strategy has been developed by listening to our community, key stakeholders and by looking at the data to understand our social and affordable housing needs,” he said.
“I encourage all community members to jump online to view the draft strategy and have their say.”
Residents must provide their feedback about the strategy before Thursday, April 21.
