Rural workers dwellings


The purpose of this Primefact is to help local councils to determine if rural workers dwellings (RWD) should be provided for in their Local Environmental Plan (LEP) together with some relevant planning considerations.

Topics include:

  • Are rural workers dwellings needed?
  • Recommended approaches
  • Developing relevant criteria for rural workers dwellings

All enquiries with regard to RWDs should be directed to the relevant local council as they are the consent authority in NSW. NSW DPI’s role is to provide strategic or policy advice in the interests of effective rural land use planning.
