Waterloo Public Housing Redevelopment & Metro Station

On 15 December 2015 the NSW Government anounced that a station on its proposed Metro railway line would be built at Waterloo. The Metro anouncement was accompanied by the anouncement that the Waterloo public housing estate would be redeveloped over the next 15-20years with community engagement starting in 2016. In this section of the website you will find details of these projects as they unfold.
Earlier Studies on Waterloo & Redfern Public Housing Redevelopment
The proposal for the redevelopment of the Waterloo Public Housing Estate linked to the Metro station follows earlier studies undertaken by the Premiers Department's Redfern Waterloo Partnership Project in 2003-4 and the Redfern Waterloo Authority / Sydney Metropolitian Development Authority's Built Environment Plan Two. The latter was undertaken in tandem with the Federally funded Housing NSW Draft Master Plan. During these studies, and other proposed redevelopments of public housing, many issues have been raised by the community. This background has been documented on the REDWatch website and the relevent links can be found here.
