Since 2004 Redfern and Waterloo has had its own Community Safety Plan. It was one of the few initiatives from the Premiers Department’s Redfern Waterloo Partnership Project. The lead agencies was Council (first under South Sydney Council and then the City of Sydney) in conjunction with the Police. Following an evaluation the Council now proposes to no longer have a specific Community Safety Plan for the area, even though that evaluation recommends a process “to decide what needs to be done from now on” in Redfern Waterloo. 
  • Is there still a need for a separate Redfern Waterloo Community Safety  Plan?
  • Will Council’s broader Safe City Strategy adequately replace the local Community Safety Plan?
  • Can the Redfern Local Area Command Police Community Precinct Committee play a role in developing and monitoring a Redfern Waterloo Community Safety Plan in a manner similar to the old Community Safety Task Force?
