Public housing developments

The Planning Proposal for Land and Housing Corporation’s (LAHC) 600-660 Elizabeth Street Redfern site, is now on exhibition with a drop-in community consultation on-site at PCYC South Sydney on June 9 from 4pm – 6pm.

The proposal is on the Policy & planning changes section of the CoS website. Hard copies of the documents are available at The Factory, Waterloo Neighbourhood Centre and RedLink for local residents to access.

A change the NSW Government made to the initial CoS proposal was to reduce social housing (30 per cent) and affordable housing (10 per cent) to a total of 30 per cent combined. Given the 10 per cent Aboriginal affordable housing call on Government developments in Redfern and Waterloo there is likely to be community pushback to this reduction, especially as no dedicated Aboriginal affordable housing is included.

For Waterloo South, the Governments proposal is expected within the next week or so if Minister Stokes’ timeframe is met. The Waterloo Redevelopment Group wants tenant representatives and agencies briefed before they read about it in the papers. There will be some delay between when the proposal is public and when consultation starts. The section of the planning department handling the consultation says it will consult with CoS, LAHC and local groups to tailor the consultation to meet the needs of the Waterloo public housing community.
