Mosman Mayor says local housing target is ‘reasonable’

Mosman Mayor, Carolyn Corrigan says the NSW Government’s housing target for the municipality as an outcome of the National Housing Accord is “reasonable”.

The Council’s housing target is 500 dwellings for the period 2024 to 2029 – an increase of 200 dwellings from the previous five-year target. 

“Mosman Council will continue to work with the Planning Minister and state agencies to help ensure adequate new infrastructure, in particular transport infrastructure, is delivered to accommodate the increase in density,” said the Mayor (pictured).

“It remains to be seen how the State Environmental Planning Policy, expected to be released shortly, will assist in delivering the housing target.” 

Mayor Corrigan said many other variables such as construction industry capacity, market liquidity, land availability and immigration numbers would continue to have a profound impact on local housing outcomes.
