Central Highlands Housing Needs Assessment

Central Highlands Housing Needs Assessment

PSA Consulting partnered Foresight Partners to prepare a Housing Needs Assessment forthe Central Highlands Regional Council.  This planning study was required to comply with the outcomes sought by SPP 1/07 Housing and Residential Development.  To complete this project PSA Consulting undertook a planning scheme analysis which sought to identify opportunities and barriers to the delivery of housing stock required to meet future demand.  This  planning assessment included a technical review of planning scheme provisions as well as a physical investigations of all towns and villages in the Central Highlands to determine their suitability to accommodate additional housing.   These investigations also included a review of contemporary planning practices and instruments that could be drawn upon as potential policy solutions that could be integrated into the new QPP Scheme.
