What is the purpose of the local area analyses?
They help us to deliver on our 20-year vision of growing and adjusting our mix of properties to better meet the changing needs of our tenants.
The local area analyses are place-based and help us better understand what housing stock we have, where it is located, its condition and what opportunities are available for redevelopment.
Each analysis provides an overview of our housing stock in the local government area (LGA), including household sizes, number of bedrooms, housing types, age of the stock and demand.
How do I use the local area analyses?
The analyses are a vital source of data that enables all areas of government and our industry partners to work together to plan and deliver more social housing for people who need it.
They are intended to stimulate discussion and the sharing of ideas.
Each contains information about a specific LGA, social housing within it, and other government investments.
They are interactive and include links to our projects in those LGAs, the council’s planning documents, the Community Housing Industry Association NSW and other relevant government projects.

If my LGA doesn’t have an analysis, does that mean you doesn’t have a plan for my area?
We are still completing analyses for LGAs across NSW. We will make new ones available once we finalise them.
Who do you consult with when developing the analyses?
We engage with other government agencies, councils and community housing providers. We are eager to hear from the industry on how we could better work together.
What are the next steps?
We are working on the remaining analyses and once we have finished them, we will post them on our website.
What are your plans for social housing?
The purpose of social housing has changed significantly since it was first established. So we have been growing and changing our portfolio to meet the needs of current and future tenants.
This means providing the type of housing that is right for them, at the right time, in the right areas..
