Riverwood Estate is close to Riverwood station, with access to the Sydney CBD and the airport. It currently has 994 social housing dwellings on over 30 hectares of government-owned land.
The Minister for Planning and Public Spaces has recently announced a new approach to precinct planning in NSW. This will mean a change of approach to planning for Riverwood Estate.
In collaboration with Land and Housing Corporation (LAHC), City of Canterbury Bankstown l will now take the lead in planning for Riverwood Estate with the support of the Department of Planning, Industry and Environment.
The Department will continue to support LAHC to achieve the NSW Government’s vision for revitalised social housing within Riverwood Estate. While the proposed rezoning will be led by City of Canterbury Bankstown, the Department will work closely with Council and LAHC to ensure State government priorities are delivered.
