The draft Strata Schemes Development Bill 2015 and the Strata Schemes Management Bill 2015 provide a modern legislative framework to support titled living arrangements.

Our submission focuses on the development opportunities associated with the Sydney Metro – CBD & South west project. Governance is crucial and Transport for NSW must work closely with the Department of Planning & Environment to ensure the benefits of this  new transport infrastructure are fully realised. Areas around metro stations must be reviewed to ensure land use zones and development controls will maximise development potential. The Urban Taskforce argues that strategic planning should upzone areas around stations for high density residential development where appropriate to allow the property market to deliver additional housing in accessible areas close to public transport.
