The NSW Land and Housing Corporation 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, the Department has prepared a list of Study Requirements for community, technical, economic and environmental studies of the site.
The Minister for Planning and Public Space has recently 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 the support of the Department of Planning Industry and Environment.
The Department will continue to support the NSW Land and Housing Corporation to achieve the NSW Government’s vision for social housing within the Elizabeth Street precinct. While the proposed rezoning will be led by City of Sydney, the Department will work closely with Council to ensure State government priorities are delivered.
