Housing development sites announced to date

Resilient Homes Program participants who have accepted a buyback offer will be given the first opportunity to purchase new land and homes from Resilient Lands Program sites before they’re offered to the open market.


The Mount Pleasant Estate in Goonellabah will be an architecturally designed development that will showcase a range of housing options in harmony with the surrounding neighbourhood. 

The housing development will include a mix of small and standard lot sizes and detached and attached housing types that could be rolled out at other future Resilient Lands Program sites. Providing a variety of housing types and affordable options will support a range of people with different housing needs.

Up to 50 dwellings will be delivered on an accelerated timeframe with construction and enabling works for land sites commencing in 2024.

East Lismore

More than 400 new homes will be made available in East Lismore thanks to a partnership between the Reconstruction Authority, Southern Cross University and Landcom.

At least 20 per cent of this development will be set aside for affordable housing for key workers, with a number of lots suitable for relocated homes.

Resilient Homes Program participants who have accepted a buyback offer will be given the first opportunity to purchase new land and homes before they’re offered to the open market.

Major construction at East Lismore is scheduled to start next year, with land and new homes expected to be available for sale from 2026.
