The Redfern area is one of Sydney’s most vibrant and diverse areas. It is the home of rich Aboriginal culture and an emerging area for creative, innovative and cultural industries.
The Redfern-Waterloo area is approximately 350 hectares in size. The revitalisation of this important area of Sydney has been central to the aims of the Redfern-Waterloo Authority since 2004 through the ongoing development of the area through improved redevelopment, the creation of jobs and improved community services.
The UrbanGrowth Development Corporation (UGDC) has assumed many of the urban renewal and planning functions of the Redfern-Waterloo Authority with ongoing development continuing in relation to the State Environmental Policy (Major Development) 2005 and the State Environment Planning Policy (State and Regional Development) 2011.
The UGDC will plan for and facilitate appropriate growth of the area through further studies in Redfern-Waterloo including the Built Environment Plan 2 (BEP 2) and a wider Urban Renewal Study.
The UGDC will seek to facilitate urban renewal to ensure the area reaches its full economic, social and creative potential by creating a vibrant, socially inclusive and more sustainable community.
These studies will address:
- The built form;
- Public domain and open space;
- Crime prevention through design;
- Transport and accessibility;
- The social impacts of development including the need for additional community facilities;
- Other issues raised by the community; and
- The development of revised planning controls.
Community consultation will be an essential part of this project with studies and revised planning controls placed on public exhibition.
