Short Term Worker Accommodation

Short Term Worker Accommodation

The Dubbo Regional Council Local Government Area continues to require significant housing and accommodation options as a result of the economic development of the Region. In particular large infrastructure projects including the Central West and Orana Renewable Energy Zone and the Australian Strategic Materials Toongi project; amongst others.

Understanding the nature, demand and opportunities for short-term worker accommodation is important to ensure policy and planning responses can adequately address potential implications for the Local Government Area.


Dubbo Regional Council engaged industry consultants Delos Delta to undertake an analysis of short term worker accommodation requirements and to identify policy and other initiatives Council can undertake to ensure the Region can both capitalise from the pulse of investment and to ensure housing availability is not further unreasonably impacted.

A report and Short-Term Worker Accommodation Study was considered at Council’s Ordinary Meeting held on 23 March that identified potential actions and challenges to assist the Region moving forward.
