Draft BEP 2 & Urban Renewal SEPP Study
Submitted by smda on Wed, 2011-12-07 15:03
The SMDA is considering the submissions received regarding the non-statutory exhibition of the draft Built Environment Plan 2 (BEP 2) which occurred earlier in 2011. The SMDA is also arranging for a range of further studies and analysis to support the appropriate future controls for the draft BEP 2 sites. This forms part of an urban renewal study for the Redfern-Waterloo Precinct with priority for the draft BEP 2 sites.
When complete, these studies and draft planning controls will be exhibited.
The key studies that will inform the future controls for draft BEP 2 are:
- A Communications and Consultation Strategy (to guide the consultation process and engagement with key stakeholders);
- An Urban Design and Built Form Review including public domain strategy (reviewing the previous draft BEP 2 and associated analysis and all submissions received, together with the study requirements from the NSW Department of Planning and Infrastructure);
- Transport, Traffic and Accessibility Review (reviewing previous preliminary work, augmented with more detailed analysis of the wider area and appropriate modelling, in close consultation with Transport for NSW);
- Social Impact Scoping and Assessment (building upon previous review work on community facilities, and appropriate scoping for social impact assessment);
- Economic Analysis (including the economic/industry profile of the area and retail needs, availability, and impact on centres);
- Sustainable Servicing and Supporting Infrastructure Assesment (including utility capacity, natural and man-made processes and sustainability measures);
The following consultants have now been appointed:
- Straight Talk will undertake the Communications and Consultation Strategy;
- The NSW Government Architect’s Office will undertake an urban design and public domain study;
- Parsons Brinckerhoff will undertake the Transport, Traffic and Accessibility Review;
- GHD will undertake the Social Impact Scoping and Assessment;
- Hill PDA will undertake the Economic Impact Assessment; and
- AECOM will undertake the Sustainable Servicing and Supporting Infrastructure Assesment.
The SMDA will progressively provide updates on its website and welcomes feedback from individuals, organisations and other stakeholders on key issues which they would like considered in the relevant study by the SMDA. All enquiries should be made directly to the SMDA (not the consultants). This way, SMDA will be able to ensure key issues are considered appropriately and in a timely manner.
