Maroondah Affordable and Social Housing Policy 2018

The Maroondah Affordable and Social Housing Policy 2018 was been prepared to help Council better understand affordable and social housing issues, establish closer relationships and ongoing sharing of information with the local service sector, and clarify Council’s policy position in responding to affordable and social housing issues.

This Policy was an identified action within the Maroondah Housing Strategy (2016), which acknowledged that Council has a role to play in the affordable and social housing space.

In developing this Policy, Council undertook background research, sought expert consultancy advice, consulted with a wide range of key stakeholders, and held an Affordable and Social Housing Forum. The outcomes from these engagement activities helped to inform the selected policy directions.

The Maroondah Affordable and Social Housing Policy 2018 highlights four priority areas where Council can play a role, along with several more specific policy directions.

Priority areas

  1. Facilitate effective planning direction and innovative support.
  2. Play a key facilitation and brokerage role to support the delivery of increased affordable and social housing in Maroondah.
  3. Work in partnership to advocate for increased investment and support for affordable and social housing.
  4. Apply a proactive approach to encouraging greater investment and supply of social and affordable Housing.

Council adopted the Maroondah Affordable and Social Housing Policy 2018 following a period of public exhibition on 27 August 2018.
