Premier Gladys Berejiklian has dumped upper house Liberal Catherine Cusack from her role as a parliamentary secretary and announced plans to reverse changes to a key koala planning policy after the upper house MP voted against a government land bill.

The plan to "revert to operations" under the former so-called state environmental planning policy 44 by the end of November followed Thursday's defeat on Ms Cusack's vote of intended changes to a related Local Land Services Bill.

Catherine Cusack: Koala policy reversed after Liberal MP votes against bill, gets sacked

— Catherine Cusack - good on her ! Koala policy reversed after Liberal MP votes against bill, gets sacked ...

Catherine Cusack's courage was very clear when she read her reasons why she was crossing the Floor & voting against the flawed Koala Bill Ms Cusack was shaking; the emotions evident! Her brave decision & personal sacrifice backing Koalas is something we all should be grateful 4

NSW's transport agency was in chaos on Wednesday night after the sudden resignation of its chief and the referral of the department to the anti-corruption watchdog about a toxic land deal in Parramatta.

Transport for NSW secretary Rodd Staples told staff in an email on Wednesday afternoon that he knew the news of his departure would come as a surprise and that he had "mixed emotions" about the decision. He gave no explanation for his departure.
