  • Part V Housing Review

    Submissions on the Review of Part V of the Planning Act have now been completed (late September) and it remains to be seen what decisions will be made about the future of Part V for the planning system.

    The review of the social and affordable elements of Part V by the Department of Local Government and the Housing Agency was undertaken to try address the problems that exist with Part V and how it will work in tandem with the subsequent introduction in 2009 of an 80% Land Rezoning Tax.

    The review set out six options for the future – ranging from abolition or suspension to a new inclusionary zoning model.

    There is no known date for any final decision on Part V but it will be watched keenly to discover what will be the way forward.
