Transport for New South Wales (TfNSW) is investigating land use and built form opportunities, with the aim of transforming the precinct into a great new place for Sydney, which would be respectful of the Aboriginal and non-Aboriginal history of the area and integrate sensitively with surrounding communities.
Plans for the Redfern North Eveleigh Precinct will recognise the unique combination of cultural, industrial, and historic factors that distinguishes the precinct and forms the foundation of its identity. These plans will include a Strategic Framework to further set out the future direction of the precinct and a proposal for new planning controls.
Redfern North Eveleigh will support innovation, collaboration and jobs for the future as part of the NSW government’s commitment to facilitate a technology hub at Tech Central. Stretching from Central Station to Camperdown, Tech Central will house start-ups, scale-ups and innovation ecosystem partners in 250,000 sqm of office space net lettable floor space for technology companies. Tech Central will also create great public spaces improving walking and cycling connections as part of urban renewal projects in the Precinct.
Study requirements have been prepared in consultation with state agencies and the City of Sydney council to guide (TfNSW) investigations into proposed new planning controls within the Redfern North Eveleigh Precinct.
The Department, in collaboration with TfNSW, hosted a Place Design Forum in August 2020 to hear views from key stakeholders and community to inform preparation of a vision and any new or updated planning controls. The results are captured in the Outcomes Report of the Place Design Forum.
TfNSW has prepared a Strategic Vision which forms the first part of the planning process to set the intention for future of the Precinct. TfNSW welcomes feedback from the community and stakeholders on the Strategic Vision, which can be seen on the TfNSW website. Following consultation, the vision will be formalised in a Strategic Framework.
The Department will continue to work closely with TfNSW to prepare a draft Strategic Framework and proposed new/updated planning controls for the Redfern North Eveleigh Precinct. The draft Strategic Framework and planning controls are expected to be exhibited later in 2021. For further details of TfNSW planning work visit the Transport for NSW web page.
