We were engaged by the Department of Planning Industry and Environment (DPIE) to assess and recommend approval of Local Housing strategies for Sydney Councils. We designed reporting templates and created a series of key measures that link the LHS with the LSPS, district plans and GSC housing targets. We reviewed the quality and suitability of all the evidence and data used in the strategies. We reviewed the actions set out by council and assessed whether these actions are an adequate response to deliver housing for their future population. Our assessment reviewed the adequacy of each LHS and provided a series of recommendations and conditions for approval.
