About Central to Eveleigh

The vision for the Central to Eveleigh area outlined in the Urban Transformation Strategy is being realised through a number of linked, but separate, projects being led by Transport for NSW and the Department of Family and Community Services with support from UrbanGrowth NSW.

After two years of studies, assessments and conversations with the community and across government, UrbanGrowth NSW finalised the Urban Transformation Strategy in November 2016 to guide future planning of government land and support the future delivery of more homes alongside better public transport, new parks and community facilities.

The Strategy is a reference document for district level planning being coordinated by the Greater Sydney Commission

Plans for five precincts of government-owned land will be progressively prepared and delivered. For information about individual projects, click below.


The renewal of Waterloo is being led by the Department of Family and Community Services under the Communities Plus program. UrbanGrowth NSW is working with Sydney Metro and the NSW Land and Housing Corporation to prepare a masterplan for the redevelopment of Waterloo Metro Quarter and the Waterloo estate.  


Long term rail operation needs are being confirmed by Transport for NSW, who are also investigating options to upgrade Redfern Station.  Renewal of Redfern Station and surrounds will be guided by the findings of feasibility investigations.
