Property acquisition

and you

Billions of dollars are being invested in new and improved infrastructure that will make New South Wales an even better place to live and work.

Transformation on this scale is not without its challenges. While utilising existing sites and state land for these projects is always the first preference, sometimes private properties may be required.


A process that puts you first

We understand that the property acquisition process can be an emotional and stressful experience. That’s why we have put processes and support mechanisms in place that focus on the needs of residents and the community in a fair and transparent way.


How does it affect you?


The property acquisition process is designed to enable the government and other approved agencies to acquire private land for public purpose. If your home has been identified as a potential acquisition it can be a traumatic and stressful time. The purpose of the reforms is to make the property acquisition process as supportive as possible by responding to individuals' circumstances and ensuring that you have all the information you need to make the best decisions for your future.
