Under the Act, social housing has the same meaning as in section 4(1) of the Housing Act 1983. Income limits for social housing are set by the Director of Housing and published by Housing Victoria. The reforms define affordable housing and indicate how to negotiate voluntary affordable housing contracts between municipalities and developers. More information and resources on Article 173 agreements can be found on the Resources for the Implementation of Affordable Housing page. The MAC consulted with many key stakeholders, including the development and real estate sectors, as well as local and government services and others, before providing its advice to the Minister of Planning in December 2019. The MAC proposed a review of the current voluntary framework for affordable housing and a step towards a more coherent and coherent approach to supporting the development of affordable housing. In September 2019, the Minister of Planning appointed a Ministerial Advisory Committee (MAC) that provides independent advice on possible models and options to facilitate the provision of affordable housing through the Victorian planning system. A mechanism to facilitate the provision of affordable housing is a voluntary agreement between a competent authority (usually a municipal council) and a landowner to provide affordable housing as part of new developments. . . .
