Property 101: NSW townhouse review continues

The public in NSW has more time to have its say on a discussion paper that proposes to support improved housing supply, affordability and diversity.

The discussion paper was released in late November on fast-tracking delivery of housing options such as terraces, often referred to as medium density or ‘the missing middle’, under the state’s complying development assessment process.

Terraces and villas are more energy efficient than detached houses, and medium density housing also offers more variety and flexibility for Sydney’s changing demographics.

The discussion paper provides details of the proposed standards and other requirements for these types of homes.

A Department spokesperson said there have been requests to extend the exhibition period, to allow more time to comment on the discussion paper.

“We want to encourage as many people as possible to spend time looking over the discussion paper and providing their feedback.”

The discussion paper is now on exhibition until Tuesday 1 March.
