This policy will help families by:
The NSW Government has made granny flats, easier and faster to build. We aim to help mums and dads create a place for those who need a space of their own, like elderly parents or those generation Y children who haven’t yet left home. These secondary dwellings also give families the chance to use a granny flat as a source of additional income in these challenging economic times.
Our new Affordable Rental Housing – State Environmental Planning Policy (SEPP) provides a range of planning incentives to encourage home owners and developers to invest and create new affordable rental housing.
Development of a granny flat can be considered upfront as part of building a new house or as an addition to an existing house.
In the past granny flats were only permitted in certain zones under councils local environmental plans (LEPs). The new policy will better support opportunities for the creation of granny flats in line with the State Government’s action to boost the supply of affordable rental accommodation.
Including a granny flat can be a positive way to add value and flexibility to the use of your home.
