In January 2017, the Minister for Planning approved the Waterloo Metro Station. The station will be part of the future Sydney Metro network, specifically the Chatswood to Sydenham section. Waterloo is one of six new stations for the Sydney Metro ‘City & Southwest’, which extends new metro rail from Chatswood, under Sydney Harbour, through the Sydney CBD to Bankstown.
The proposed Waterloo Metro Quarter is an integrated station development combining the approved station and a separate over station development.
The over station development is identified as State Significant Development and comprises of five building envelopes including three towers and two mid-rise buildings above and adjacent to the station.
The department has received the following applications:
- Concept proposal – previously approved in December 2019, the amending concept plan is currently under consideration
- Northern Precinct – currently under consideration
- Central Precinct – currently under consideration
- Southern Precinct – currently under consideration
- Basement Car park – currently under consideration
Planning controls for the Waterloo Metro Quarter were approved in December 2019.
The final planning controls relate to building heights, floor space ratio and active street frontages. The Concept SSD Application will take into account the approved new planning controls.
Although the State Significant Precinct (SSP) study application and the Concept SSD application relate to each other, they are separate planning processes.
