The Greater Sydney Commission has released the Sydney North draft District Plan for exhibition until March 2017. The draft Plan makes reference to housing and job targets, and nominates targets of 5-10% of new areas be made available for ‘affordable rental housing’. This target applies to urban renewal and land release areas overall across the whole District, not just to the Northern Beaches. Each nominated area would undergo more detailed viability testing to determine the appropriate target for that area.
