Housing and Property

The new Housing and Property Group has been formed to maximise economic outcomes and deliver community benefits through the more efficient utilisation of government owned land and property in the delivery of diverse housing and public spaces.

We provide strategic oversight and coordination to ensure that government owned property and government led development is advanced as a whole-of-government agenda to deliver improved economic, environmental, cultural and social outcomes.

Our group has more than $75bn worth of assets under management and will work together to further lift outcomes for our customers and the people of NSW.

Agencies and divisions within our group include:


We are responsible for managing NSW’s Crown land on behalf of the people of NSW. Crown land covers around 42% of NSW and includes parks, reserves, roads and cemeteries with a value at over $6.1 billion. Crown land is used and enjoyed for recreation, businesses, tourism and has significant importance to the Aboriginal people of NSW.

The 35,000 Crown reserves provide many of the state’s town squares and local parks, state heritage sites, buildings, community halls, nature reserves, coastal lands, waterway corridors, sporting grounds, racetracks, showgrounds, caravan parks, camping areas, travelling stock routes, rest areas, walking tracks, commons, community and government infrastructure and facilities. Hyde Park and Bondi Beach in Sydney are two famous examples of the NSW Crown reserve system at work.

We manage around 54,000 leases and licences enabling the use of Crown land across the state for a range of commercial, agricultural, industrial, community, residential and private uses.
