Why we got involved

Road and footpath access held up a proposed subdivision in Urunga, a small town on the Mid-North Coast where the community needs more homes.


What we did

The Planning Delivery Unit (PDU) brought Bellingen Shire Council and Transport for NSW (TfNSW) together to understand and discuss the problems, and find solutions. With the PDU's help, the council and TfNSW undertook more research on speed zones and roundabouts.


What happened

Both parties agreed to install a roundabout to provide vehicle and walkway access to the site.


The subdivision was given the green light with 376 homes to be built with a capital investment value of $33.7m.
