What is the mechanism that Government would use to implement IZ?

A:

In a considered way expand State Environmental Planning Policy 70 Affordable Housing across all local government areas.

 In a Considered way means that it would be phased in over a number of years, so that developers can factor in the cost of the affordable housing into the purchase of the land.

 SEPP No. 70 Affordable Housing is a policy which offers a mechanism allowing specified councils to assign an affordable housing contribution to certain developments within its local government area. This scheme is currently operating in Ultimo-Pyrmont and Green Square only.
