Inclusionary Housing Pilot

The Government’s housing strategy Home for Victorians commits to undertaking an Inclusionary Housing Pilot (IHP) to be facilitated by the Fast Track Government Land Service (FTGLS). 

Six sites across Victoria have been nominated for the IHP, including the subject site. The IHP seeks to deliver new social housing homes as part of an overall development on surplus government land. Planning certainty will be secured and private sector partnerships established to ensure an overall high quality built form outcome.

The IHP aims to deliver up to 100 new social housing homes across the six sites, but it is yet to be determined how many dwellings will be delivered on each site. Proposals will be evaluated to make sure they deliver the best outcomes for social housing and investment by government.

If you have any questions about the Inclusionary Housing Pilot, contact (03) 9637 9227 or email Inclusionary.Housing@delwp.vic.gov.au.
