We’re working on a number of short-term and long-term housing projects across the Shire. We want to be proactive and work with our communities to enable local solutions on this national issue, and partner with others where we can.

In May 2021 Council declared a key worker accommodation crisis in recognition of how a lack of affordable accommodation was impacting the economy and sustainability of local communities. As part of our Council Plan, we want people have access to more affordable and sustainable residential accommodation options. We are also committed to ensuring all community members are treated fairly and equitably.
