Hundreds of new homes unlocked for Parramatta

08 November 2023

Housing for hundreds more families and singles will be made available on Church Street North, close to the future Parramatta Light Rail Stage 1 alignment, after plans to rezone a section of Parramatta were revealed as part of efforts to address NSW’s long-term housing supply crisis. 

The area north of the Parramatta River straddles the light rail line, which is due to open in 2024. 

Located close to the Parramatta CBD, public transport, schools, jobs, public parks, and local services, the new homes will also be serviced by the future Fennell Street and Prince Alfred Square light rail stops, making the most of this vital public transport infrastructure. 

The rezoning will support hundreds of jobs during construction, and new residents will mean more jobs for Parramatta over the long-term. 

The NSW Department of Planning and Environment will consider important community and stakeholder feedback received through the City of Parramatta process before the rezoning is finalised over the coming months.
