Local Government Housing Kit

24 February 2014

The 2011 Census data is now available in the Local Government Housing Kit Database. The NSW Local Government Housing Kit has been created to help councils, community housing providers and others understand local housing needs and issues and to formulate appropriate local responses. The database provides up-to-date information on housing need and affordability.
