The Transport Oriented Development (TOD) Program will deliver much-needed housing around 39 transport hubs. Together with the Diverse and Well-Located Homes Program, these reforms are necessary because many local councils have been unwilling to allow sufficient housing to be built in those scarce inner-city locations where Sydneysiders most want to live.

Directly up-zoning scarce inner-city land is the most direct and immediate way to boost housing supply in Sydney. The NSW Government should stay the course on these planned up-zonings in the face of council opposition.

People struggling to find a home in Sydney can afford no further delay.
