Victoria Housing Strategy 2016–2025

The Victoria Housing Strategy provides guidance for housing policies and initiatives that meet residents’ needs. We are in Phase Two of the policy, building on Phase One and Council’s Strategic Plan which was adopted in July 2019.

The strategy includes 44 actions that focus on ways to:

  • improve affordability, stability and choice for renters
  • encourage new housing supply
  • encourage a range of housing options to meet the needs of residents
  • track our progress and improve the City’s housing policies and programs
  • try bold ideas to achieve new results
