Urban Housing Strategy

The Urban Housing Strategy (UHS) was developed in response to the State Government's "Directions 2031 and Beyond" report which outlines a potential doubling of the population and an additional 35,510 dwellings within the City of Swan by 2031. The anticipated number of new dwellings could be accommodated in the City's expanding urban growth areas as greenfield development, however, increasing the opportunities for infill development within the City's established areas will provide much needed housing options for residents who prefer to live in these areas.

The key component of the UHS is its Infill Housing Strategy which introduces a Dual Residential Code and five new design criteria. Development at a higher residential density code is subject to Local Planning Scheme No.17 provisions being met.
