Further to Council’s resolution on this matter, the NSW Government has provided an update on the Transport Oriented Development Program. Following consideration of Council’s submission, the Minister has advised that the new planning controls for higher density development within 400m of identified train stations will commence for Lidcombe in April 2024 and further discussions to be undertaken with the Department of Planning and Council for Berala prior to the planned implementation in October 2024. 

Further details will be provided to the community as this becomes available.


April 2024 Update

NSW Government's Transport Oriented Development Program at Berala and Lidcombe, was considered at Council meeting on 6 March 2024. Meeting minutes are available to view in the document library.


The Program seeks to increase housing at Berala and Lidcombe by allowing development up to 6 storeys to be located within 400m of these train stations in areas currently zoned for low and medium density development. 

By building more housing near the metro and rail stations, we can enable more people to live close to transport, jobs, services, night life and amenities.

The Transport Oriented Development (TOD) Program will create sustainable and connected cities now and for future generations.
