According to The Australian Financial Review, the NSW government will expedite four priority projects across greater Sydney in the next eight weeks to create more than 66,500 jobs and build 50,000 homes through the newly created Planning Delivery Unit (PDU).
Planning and Public Spaces Minister Rob Stokes said the PDU would focus on reducing bottlenecks in big development applications, State Significant Developments and planning proposals so that decisions could be made faster.
PDU, led by former Liverpool City Council CEO Kiersten Fishburn, will prioritise four big projects initially and also help to push ahead with individual proposals, over the next two months.
This includes the Parramatta Road Corridor Strategy, which will begin accepting planning proposals and development applications to build 27,000 homes along Parramatta Road.
