- make new land allocations or area designations in DPDs
- initiate calls for sites or Strategic Housing Land Availability Assessments
- review use of conditions
- review planning department resource and/or capacity
- consider CPOs or direct purchase of land
- encourage the use of small sites
- explore higher density development
- and much more
