Strategic Reference Group Established
The Northern Beaches Council established a Strategic Reference Group (SRG) on Affordable Housing in 2016, to help the new Council develop its first Community Strategic Plan. The SRG is comprised of community members and sector experts, working together to address their Terms of Reference through to July 2017:
- Provide input to the Vision, Priorities and Objectives for the Draft Community Strategic Plan
- Provide advice on strategic direction and policy development towards addressing the shortage of affordable housing, including the hospital precinct and land release area of Ingleside
- Provide advice on opportunities and challenges including major centres
- Explore opportunities, existing models and challenges in consultation with external agencies and organisations

This project page is also a source of background material for the SRG and other interested community members. As the SRG makes progress on this issue, Council will consult more broadly with the community in 2017.
