Housing discussion: the questions
Central Coast Council's housing strategy discussion paper contains 12 questions.
Should Council require some apartments to be developed as accessible dwellings (suited to older people and people with a disability)?
What should Council do to facilitate the provision of more affordable housing?
Should Council encourage the redevelopment of more medium density dwellings, including townhouses and retrofitting secondary dwellings?
As working from home becomes more common, do we need to design our homes differently to provide workspaces, or are our existing dwellings adequate?
Which areas do you think are well-suited to additional housing?
Do you agree with this vision for housing on the Central Coast in the future?
What types of housing do you think are most beneficial to the wider community?
What can be done to ensure that housing is sustainable?
Have you been able to find a dwelling that meets your needs? Do you think you will need a different type of dwelling in the future?
Should housing development be contained to the existing urban area to protect land for agriculture and to maintain the scenic qualities for the Central Coast, or should we allow the urban area to expand into the rural area?
How can we better balance the challenges of the Central Coast's growing population whilst at the same time protecting the natural environment and neighbourhood character of our existing residential areas?
Which centres do you think are suitable for higher density housing?
Answers to these questions and feedback will be accepted by Central Coast Council until February 28.
