Council is updating its Growth Management Strategy. This strategic land-use document was originally completed in 2014 and guides the future growth of Shoalhaven. It examines the number and type of new homes needed by the community over the next 20 years. It also addresses:

  • Initiatives to make housing easier to afford.
