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) and the relevant planning criteria.

Topics include:

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

All enquiries with regard to workers’ dwellings should be directed to the relevant local council. Councils are the local planning and development authority in NSW.

NSW DPI’s role is to encourage strategic approaches to rural development and to help streamline the Development Application process.
