Transport Oriented Development Program

NSW needs more housing supply. We have a once-in-a-lifetime chance to shape the Six Cities Region’s city planning around Sydney’s new world-class metro system and leverage existing rail stations to serve generations to come.

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.

What is a TOD?

TOD is a land use planning approach that encourages sustainable and mixed-use development around transport and aims to create vibrant and walkable communities.

There are 2 parts to the TOD program:

Diverse and well-located homes
