The NSW Land and Housing Corporation (LAHC) is planning to deliver more social housing in the inner city and further the aims of the Communities Plus program.
The Elizabeth Street site, bounded by Elizabeth, Phillip, Walker and Kettle streets and opposite Redfern Oval, was previously declared a potential State Significant Precinct (SSP).
The one-hectare government-owned site includes the Police Citizens Youth Club (PCYC), the South Sydney Aboriginal Corporation Resource Centre and other health and fitness facilities as well as a large area of open space.
With support from the City of Sydney and state government agencies, we prepared a list of Study Requirements for community, technical, economic and environmental studies of the site.
In late 2019, the Minister for Planning and Public Spaces announced a new approach to precinct planning in NSW. This will mean a change of approach to planning for Elizabeth Street, Redfern.
The City of Sydney will now take the lead in planning for Elizabeth Street, Redfern with support from us. We will continue to work closely with LAHC and the City to ensure State government priorities are delivered.
