New NSW Office of Housing Coordination established
October 24, 2017
The NSW Government has created an Office of Housing Coordination as part of its housing affordability package, announced in June.
The role of the Office of Housing Coordination – which sits within the Department of Planning and Environment (DP&E) – is to support the government’s goal of increasing housing supply, by working with councils to fast-track re-zonings for priority precincts and other areas.
DP&E has indicated that the new office will address any bottlenecks to rolling out key infrastructure and fast-tracking the approval process to deliver more housing.
