Waterloo Estate has been identified as one of the locations under the NSW Government’s $22 billion Communities Plus program to deliver new social and affordable housing alongside private housing. The redevelopment of the estate is expected to occur over the next 15-20 years.


The Waterloo precinct was being investigated for rezoning through the State Significant Precinct process. As part of the rezoning investigation of Waterloo Estate, the Department had previously issued study requirements to Land and Housing Corporation (LAHC). You can view the study requirements here (PDF, 547KB).

What happens next?

In late 2019, the Minister for Planning and Public Spaces announced a new approach to precinct planning in NSW. This included a change of approach to planning for Waterloo Estate.


The City of Sydney will now take the lead in planning for Waterloo Estate with support from us. 


We will continue to work closely with LAHC and the City of Sydney to ensure State Government priorities are delivered.
