The Central to Eveleigh Urban Transformation and Transport Program has the potential to open doors to new opportunities for years to come for people who work, live and visit the area. By building on the strengths of the area, with its diverse communities, housing options and growing creative, knowledge and digital industries, we are planning for a vibrant and connected community of the future.
Your participation in the Program is important in making sure we get this right. The types of benefits the Program will deliver include innovative approaches to housing diversity, redevelopment of Redfern Station and new and improved green spaces along the spine of the corridor with better walking and cycle routes. We want both Aboriginal and European heritage to be celebrated and to create spaces that expand cultural and creative activities.
We will need to balance the impact of building heights and traffic while improving the liveability of the area for local communities. The next stage is to ask for your thoughts on our draft urban design and planning principles that will indicate the future outcomes and priorities.
While it’s too early to have a firm idea of how many people, or new homes, might be brought into the area over the long term, we are using a range to guide our studies from approximately 8,000 to 15,000 dwellings in the corridor. We are testing a range of scenarios but the results of technical studies will guide our final decision about the scale of future development.
