Urban Transformation Strategy
The Urban Transformation Strategy guides renewal of around 50 hectares of government-owned land in and around the rail corridor from Central to Erskineville Stations. The Strategy was released by UrbanGrowth NSW in November 2016.
The Strategy is an important reference document guiding:
- district planning, led by the Greater Sydney Commission
- local planning, led by Transport for NSW and Department of Family and Community Services.
UrbanGrowth NSW, will provide support for future planning as required.
The Strategy contains an ambition, vision and the 10 key moves that set the framework for the future delivery of more homes alongside better public transport, new parks and community facilities.
The Strategy is not a statutory document or a rezoning proposal. It takes a smart city thinking approach to sustainable growth for Sydney’s future and outlines the contribution that government-owned land can play in this future.
To facilitate project delivery, planning for each precinct of government land is being led and coordinated as follows:
- Redfern – a collaboration between Transport for NSW and UrbanGrowth NSW
- North Eveleigh - a collaboration between Transport for NSW and UrbanGrowth NSW
- Waterloo – led by the Department of Family and Community Services under Communities Plus, in partnership with UrbanGrowth NSW
- South Eveleigh – led by the Department of Family and Community Services under Communities Plus
- Central – led by Transport for NSW.
UrbanGrowth NSW is assisting government land owners to plan for balanced development outcomes in local precincts to provide homes and jobs alongside new public open space, community facilities and great design.
