  • Background to the Amendment - The Housing Strategy

    about 2 years ago

    Encourage higher density residential development close to activity centres

    In 2015 the Casey City Council adopted the Housing Strategy, City of Casey, 2015. The version available here is the latest version adopted on 15 August 2017, which has some minor corrections and additions. This strategy went through a public consultation process and resulted in recommendations about the future of residential development in the established suburbs in the City of Casey. Those recommendations are implemented through the three main components of Amendment C198.
