NCOSS meets with the Director General of Planning and Infrastructure

On 7 May 2012, NCOSS met with Sam Haddad, Director General of the Department of Planning andInfrastructure, to discuss our Pre Budget Submission for 2012-13. While the Department is not a funding body, the planning system has an important role to play in facilitating the provision of affordable housing. NCOSS emphasised the need for the NSW Government to develop a clear affordable housing plan, including numerical targets, on a whole of government basis and in partnership with the Commonwealth. We had a positive discussion about the opportunities presented by the work of the Affordable Housing Task Force, and other planning reviews, and the link between housing supply and the roll out of new public transport infrastructure.
