Waterloo Redevelopment 2016

To help keep everyone accross the proposals for the Waterloo redevelopment as they unfold REDWatch is bringing together key documents related to the Governments Plans for the Estate.
File Land and Housing Response to REDWatch Questions
On 27 September 2016 Land and Housing Corporation (LAHC) replied to the questions of 2 May 2016 that REDWatch asked of LAHC, FaCS Housing and UrbanGrowth Central to Eveleigh who shared various responsibilities at the time for aspects of the Waterloo public housing estate and its redevelopment. Since this time it has become apparent that LAHC are driving this process through its new Communities Plus mechanism rather than through UrbanGrowth who undertook much of the early work. The written responses are quite general responses to the issue areas raised by REDWatch rather than the detailed responses to specific questions many might like to see. These questions will form a basis for ongoing discussion between LAHC and the community during the Master Planning process.
REDWatch - Initial questions regarding the proposed Waterloo redevelopment
Below are a series of questions from REDWatch relating to the Waterloo redevelopment announcement. As the issues raised in many cases stretch across responsibility areas for UrbanGrowth, LAHC and Housing NSW REDWatch supplied these questions to all three organisations. REDWatch has previously been actively involved in the BEP2 and Housing NSW Draft Master Plan discussions and these discussions inform the questions raised in the attached document. The document is also informed by recent REDWatch forums on the Waterloo development and questions raised with us following the announcement and the subsequent HNSW forums and discussions. As answers to questions become available we will make these available on this website.

File Waterloo Newsletter November 2016 from FACS Communities Plus
This is a pdf copy of the Newsletter distributed to Waterloo public housing tenants on 11 November 2016. It is the first publication issued under the Communities Plus programme for redeveloping this and other housing estates. It seeks to provide some assurances for tenants that the Master Planning will take 18 months and that the Master Plan will produce a staging plan and only when that is complete will they know where on the estate building will start. The newsletter says and that the small number of tenants will need to move will be given 6 months' notice from that point that they will need to relocate for the initial construction. This changes the first relocations from the earlier announced mid-2017 to possibly the end of 2018. Master Planning will start in 2017.
Waterloo Connect & NAB End of Year BBQ - Dec 8 11.30am Dec 08, 2016 from 11:30 AM to 01:30 PM Waterloo Neighborhood Centre, IGA, 95 Wellington Street Waterloo,

File Waterloo Stakeholder and Engagement Framework - December 2016
This framework has emerged from agencies asking Land and Housing Corporation (LAHC) to spell out their engagement framework in advance of any actual Master Plan engagement. It follows workshops with agencies in July and August and feedback from agencies to draft frameworks. A meeting at NCIE on November considered a draft and further changes were made after this meeting. This is the public document released in December 2016.
File Agency Feedback on Engagement Strategy - Nov 2016
With the finalisation of the "Waterloo Stakeholder and Engagement Framework" in December 2016 LAHC Communities Plus also released on 28 November 2016 agency feedback on an earlier draft. This is that document. It is important to note however that the feedback recorded relates to written feedback received by LAHC and that input made in direct meetings was not reflected in this document. The lesson - it won't necessarily be recorded if it is not in writing!
File Past Consultation Summary - Dec 2016
At the NCIE meeting on November 28 2016 Communities Plus released a summary of past consultations and what lessons they had identified from them - this is that document. You can find further information on the REDWatch website about the 2011-12 BEP2 and the Draft Housing NSW Master Plan consultations and community reactions to them. This document confines itself to the "engagement activities" and does not address the major community concern that the studies and documents produced as part of the earlier consultations should be released now so the community has this information as input into the current process.
Redeveloping Public Housing - Inner Sydney Voice Winter 2016
The Winter edition of ISV looked in considerable detail at the NSW Government's Communities Plus mechanism for delivering the Government's Future Directions for Social Housing in NSW. The issue looks at the Waterloo announcement and what can be learnt from earlier public housing redevelopments. The issue also contains articles, many by experts in their field, which explore the issues that need to be considered in planning for any public housing redevelopment as currently envisaged. You can download the pdf of this issue from this link or you can visit www.innersydneyvoice.org.au/pub/category/past-editions/winter-2016/ to see the individual articles as webpages.
Waterloo relocations put back to mid 2018
Discussions are still underway about what studies will be be undertaken in the Waterloo Master Plan which is scheduled to start in 2017. Land and Housing Corporation (LAHC) have said the Master Plan will determine where on the estate redevelopment will take place. These delays mean LAHC will not know until well after mid 2017 where they will start and which residents they will want to relocate. On 12 December 2016 it was decided that Waterloo tenants should be advised that the first relocations will be pushed back. A brief statement on the FACS website says LAHC are now looking at relocations starting mid 2018.
File Waterloo Information Sheet - Dec 2016
The first version of this Community Plus hand out was distribted to agencies on 28 November to agencies. Much of the content is similar to the LAHC response to the REDWatch questions. Please note this is the final version with changes made after the December 12 meeting with Minister Hazzard. This version was modified to recognise that relocations will not take place until mid-2018.
