Cheaper housing MOU

STIRLING city council is considering a memorandum of understanding with WA’s housing authority to increase affordable housing options.

Both the council and the authority are major land owners within the city’s boundaries, and the non-binding MOU is a pledge to work together to develop those holdings to increase housing diversity.

One of the major objectives is to identify and progress potential development sites, which could mean purchasing more land in key sites.

The council would also get access to information on how the authority engages private developers. However, that information would be kept confidential – the only binding part of the MOU.

Both organisations would also look for and support pilot projects that deliver innovative housing.

The MOU was drafted by Housing, and if the city agrees, they will establish a working group which must meet at least quarterly.
