Submission to Housing Diversity SEPP EIE

DPIE exhibited an Explanation of Intended Effect (EIE) for a proposed new State Environmental Planning Policy (SEPP) that aims to facilitate the delivery of diverse housing that meets the needs of the State’s growing population and will support the development of a build-to-rent sector.

The proposed Housing Diversity State Environmental Planning Policy (Housing Diversity SEPP) would consolidate three current SEPPs and update some planning provisions in response to community and council concerns about boarding house and seniors housing development.

Changes to facilitate more social housing are also proposed and three new diverse housing types – build-to-rent housing, student housing and co-living – are being introduced to provide more housing options for the people of NSW.
