Burwood, Strathfield and Homebush are great places to live with their own unique qualities. They have good examples of heritage architecture and access to open space, recreational facilities, restaurants, business and shopping districts. They also have strong public transport links with Sydney CBD and Parramatta CBD just a short train journey.


It was because of their great attributes that Burwood, Strathfield and Homebush were announced for rejuvenation through strategic planning by the NSW Government as part of a housing affordability package on 1 June 2017.


The planning program provides for a range of new homes to help put downward pressure on house prices. Planning for these areas is coordinated by state and local governments to ensure infrastructure such as schools, parks, community facilities, public transport and road upgrades are delivered to support community needs. 


Next steps

We are working with City of Canada Bay, Burwood and Strathfield Councils to plan for this precinct. This process involves:

  • Completing detailed studies including:
    • Urban design and planning.
    • Transport and traffic.
    • Heritage.
    • Social infrastructure and open space.
    • Environmental.
    • Economic analysis.
  • Seeking community and stakeholder feedback on the plan at key stages of the planning process.


The result of the precinct planning process will inform future land use controls. It will build on Parramatta Road Corridor Urban Transformation Strategy (finalised in November 2016) and other strategic work the Councils have completed or have recently commenced.
