Thousands of homes could be built in Holroyd if a new council plan is adopted.
A proposal to rezone 15 precincts from low density to medium density will be put on public exhibition from Wednesday, March 26 to Wednesday, April 23.
The proposal will provide an extra 2500 to 3000, three and four-bedroom dwellings under the Holroyd Local Environmental Plan (LEP) 2013.
The medium-density zone allows seven types of residential developments including single dwellings, detached and semi-detached dual occupancies, terraces, villas, townhouses and boarding houses.
Holroyd mayor Nasr Kafrouni said the move would offer growing families living in Holroyd and throughout western Sydney a home in the community and strengthen the local economy.
"Our new Local Environmental Plan has already increased land values, affordable housing options, attracted major apartment developments; and rezoning low density areas to medium-density would bring more family-sized homes into the mix," Cr Kafrouni said.
