Sydney Metro have submitted a Concept State Significant Development Application seeking consent for the broad concept for an Over Station Development above the Waterloo Metro Station.
Within the concept application, Sydney Metro are seeking approval for:
The Concept Development Application does not seek approval for any construction works.
A State Significant Precinct (SSP) Study for Waterloo Metro Quarter was also on exhibition until 30 January 2019. The SSP Study includes proposed planning controls for the precinct relating to building heights, floor space ratio and active street frontages. Find out more about the SSP Study and to have your say please visit our Waterloo Metro Quarter SSP webpage.
The Concept SSD Application takes into account the proposed planning controls. Although the SSP study and the Concept SSD Application relate to each other, they are separate planning processes.
If the Concept SSD Application is approved, separate application/s will be required for the detailed design and construction of the development.
These application/s will be exhibited and assessed by the Department. You will be invited to provide feedback on the application/s at that time.
The development will be above and around the previously approved Waterloo metro station and have direct access to the station.
Waterloo is one of six new stations for the Sydney Metro ‘City & Southwest’, which extends new metro rail from Chatswood, under Sydney Harbour, through the Sydney CBD to Bankstown.
The concept application for the Waterloo Metro Quarter Over Station Development was on public exhibition until 30 January 2019.
The Department will publish all submissions received shortly and ask Sydney Metro to address any issues raised by the community, council and government agencies.
Sydney Metro will prepare a formal Response to Submissions (RTS) report, which we will make publicly available.
The Department will then assess the project, which includes consideration of the Environmental Impact Statement (EIS), all submissions and community feedback, and the RTS.
The Department will make a recommendation to the Minister for Planning for his determination.
