The Redfern North Eveleigh Precinct is located within the wider Redfern-Waterloo Authority Sites State Significant Precinct (SSP). The Redfern North Eveleigh Precinct is 10 hectares of government-owned land at the southern edge of Redfern Station, located between the rail corridor and Wilson Street. The SSP process allows the Department of Planning, Industry and Environment (DPIE) to consider proposals for new planning controls for areas that are of state or regional planning significance such as the Redfern North Eveleigh Precinct.  

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. 

Tech Central 

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 

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.

Place Design Forum

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’s Strategic Vision 

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. 

What happens next?

The Department will continue to work closely with TfNSW to prepare new planning controls for the Redfern North Eveleigh Precinct.  For further details of TfNSW planning work visit the Transport for NSW web page.
