Public housing developments

Residential development defined as ‘public housing’ is accepted development in accordance with the provisions in the Planning Act 2016 and the Planning Regulation 2017, Schedule 6 Part 5. Development under this part does not require development approval from the local government.

In accordance with Schedule 6 Part 5 of the Planning Act 2016, proposals for public housing are required to be considered against the relevant local government planning scheme. The Director-General, Department of Housing and Public Works makes a determination about the level of compliance with the relevant planning scheme.

Public consultation

When a public housing development proposal is considered substantially inconsistent with the relevant planning scheme, we will publish notification online and in relevant newspapers.

You are encouraged to have your say about these proposals by submitting your comments by the closing dates mentioned below.

Following the end of the public notification, the Director-General will have regard to any submissions received when deciding whether or not to proceed with the proposed development.

Current proposals

The proposal is for a 10 x 1-bedroom multiple dwelling on land at 158-160 Mount Warren Boulevard, Mount Warren Park (Lot 12 RP813252).

A public notice will appear in Albert & Logan News on Thursday, 7 February 2019.​

The consultation for this project begins on Friday, 8 February 2019 and will end on Friday, 1 March 2019.

Written submissions should be sent by post or email to:

Department of Housing and Public Works
C/- Housing Partnerships Office, Housing and Homelessness Services
