What’s this about?

SEPP 70 Affordable Housing (Revised Schemes) is a mechanism that allows specified councils to prepare an affordable housing contribution scheme for certain precincts, areas or developments associated with an upzoning within their local government area.

Schemes currently operate in the City of Sydney at Green Square, Ultimo-Pyrmont and the Southern Employment Lands.

An Explanation of Intended Effect (EIE) for SEPP 70 is currently on exhibition to review the proposed inclusions of five councils – Randwick City, Inner West, Northern Beaches, City of Ryde and City of Canada Bay.
