Complying development for dual occupancies and townhouses - 30 Nov, 2015

 The Department of Planning and Environment (the Department) is examining opportunities to provide
greater housing choice and better design for medium density housing across NSW, by broadening the
range of development types that can be carried out as complying development under the State
Environmental Planning Policy (Exempt and Complying Codes) 2008 (the Policy).
 
The population of NSW is projected to grow by more than 100,000 people annually, with projections
indicating homes will be required for an additional 1.6 million residents by 2031. Metropolitan Sydney
alone will require an additional 664,000 dwellings over the next 20 years. It is necessary to explore
options to meet this housing demand.
 
One approach is the expansion of complying development to cover medium density housing options, to
assist in the delivery of more housing, provide greater housing choice and better design outcomes for
medium density development across the State.
 
This Discussion Paper has been prepared by SJB Planning, on behalf of the Department, to seek
feedback from the community and other stakeholders on the expansion of complying development to
cover medium density housing development.
