$5 million boost to deliver more homes for South Coast Build to Rent

The NSW Government will provide a $5 million boost to deliver an additional 10 dwellings for the South Coast Build to Rent project, helping to increase housing supply and deliver more rental housing.

The additional $5 million in funding increases the NSW Government’s investment in the project to $35 million – delivering a total of 60 dwellings.

As part of Landcom’s design and planning for the Bomaderry site, it became evident additional dwellings could be delivered for a small increase in funding. The additional funding will allow delivery of new architecturally designed homes for approximately 130 people.

Work is underway to finalise the design and planning in preparation for the lodgement of the development application. Subject to approvals, construction is expected to begin in 2025 with residents to move in 2026.

Landcom will be holding a community engagement session on 29 February 2024 at Bomaderry Bowling Club between 5pm and 7.30pm. The session is an opportunity for locals to hear from the project team, receive details on the project and share their thoughts.
