Residential Development Strategy - East - Phase Two Implementation

Council has identified areas where it can increase the number of homes - in Fairfield, Fairfield Heights, Fairfield East and Villawood.  A map of proposed zoning shows intended medium and high density residential precincts

Public exhibition occurred in early March 2016.  State Government agencies have required more detailed studies to understand the impact of increased residential density on local infrastructure and the environment.
