Wagga Wagga City Council is developing the Wagga Wagga Housing Strategy to address key housing issues within the local government area during the short, medium and long-term.

The housing strategy will create a clear evidence base for housing supply, demand, diversity, location and affordability across Wagga Wagga, surrounding villages and rural communities.

It is critical to address these issues to enable Council to provide a high quality of life for residents of all backgrounds, ages and incomes.

In late 2022, the NSW State Government commenced Round 1 of the Regional Housing Strategic Planning Fund, aimed to assist councils with funding to prepare strategic documents that will enhance housing supply. Council was successful in securing $250,000 of funding through this program which, alongside increased staff resourcing, has enabled the prioritisation of preparing the Housing Strategy. More information on the Regional Housing Strategic Planning Fund can be found on the NSW Planning website.

During September 2023, Wagga Wagga City Council will be conducting engagement with community stakeholders that will inform the Wagga Wagga Housing Strategy. If you would like to be informed of when and where these opportunities are taking place, please sign up to receive updates.

Proudly funded by the NSW Government in association with Wagga Wagga City Council.
