Drop-in sessions in October and November will allow the community to meet planners from the Department of Planning and Environment and the City of Canada Bay Council about the revitalisation of Rhodes on the eastern side of the rail line.

The draft Priority Precinct Plan for Rhodes East could see 3600 new homes, a new school, community facilities, shops, cafes and new pedestrian and cycling paths along the Parramatta River foreshore.

Open and recreational space is a key part of the plan, which also prioritises public transport, walking and cycling.

Minister for Planning and Housing, Anthony Roberts, said the Rhodes East plan included a range of housing types, including affordable housing.

“We want our essential workers such as police, teachers, nurses, ambulance and fire officers, cleaners and child carers to be able to afford to live where they want, near their jobs, their families, and not just where they can afford,” Mr Roberts said.

The draft plan will be on exhibition until November 10.
