Exhibition of an Amendment to Strathfield Direct Development Contributions Plan 2010-2030

Council at its meeting on 5 March 2019 resolved to amend the Strathfield Direct Contributions Plan 2010-2030.

The amendment proposes to introduce a specific category for boarding house developments based on the occupancy rate of the boarding room and to adopt a more appropriate occupancy rate for secondary dwellings.
