About the project

Council is seeking feedback from our communities on our draft Affordable Housing Strategy.

Discussions with key stakeholders and local organisations highlighted the need for more affordable housing in Bass Coast.

This draft Strategy reveals there is an urgent need for affordable, social and emergency housing especially for older single women as well as women and children fleeing domestic violence.

It also comes amid a State Government committment to grow social housing across Victoria - building 36 new properties in Bass Coast but more are desperately needed.

This draft Strategy outlines Council’s role as a facilitator of the delivery of affordable housing through advocacy, engagement and partnerships, land use planning and where appropriate, making Council owned land available.

To provide your feedback on the draft Affordable Housing Strategy please:

  • fill out the submission below (provision to attach documents)
  • Post your feedback to Bass Coast Shire Council, PO Box 118, Wonthaggi VIC 3995 or drop in to one of our Customer Service Centres
  • Email: basscoast@basscoast.vic.gov.au

Submissions close Monday, 26 June 2023.

Next steps:

All feedback will be reviewed after the consultation closes and may be used to finalise the document for consideration by Council at a future meeting.
