Project Description

NBLC was retained by the Town of The Blue Mountains to prepare a Housing Needs Study. The study was conducted within the Town’s Integrated Community Sustainability Plan, which aims to create an “overarching, long-term development strategy that provides a path towards a ‘sustainable community’”.

The objective of this study was to evaluate the current housing situation in the Town, identify any current and/or future gaps or shortfalls, and recommend policies and programs for addressing identified issues and concerns. This study provided an overview of past and current trends relating to population, housing and labour force/employment in the Town; future housing demand; housing supply relative to demand; assesses housing affordability and provides policy and program recommendations for Town Council’s consideration with respect to the provision of a housing strategy in The Town of The Blue Mountains.
