LAHC statement on the Waterloo redevelopment post exhibition

In late June 2022 the Land and Housing Corporation (LAHC) briefed Waterloo tenant representatives and agencies about LAHCs decision to proceed with the redevelopment. These briefings were not made public and more details will be released in the near future. On 30 June 2022, REDWatch requested a statement of what LAHC could say at that time to the wider community. This statement is below. A newsletter to all Waterloo tenants will advise the community in early July.

The NSW Land and Housing Corporation (LAHC) is working across government and with the community to renew Waterloo’s essential social housing infrastructure, and to deliver more homes and a vibrant place to live, work and visit that is close to jobs and transport. 

Following public exhibition of the Waterloo South Planning Proposal by the Department of Planning and Environment (DPE), LAHC is now preparing to renew Waterloo South, delivering on the following objectives: 

  • More and better homes: build more and better social housing in mixed communities to meet the needs of residents now and in the future
  • Positive social outcomes for residents: create a place that supports residents’ health and wellbeing and sensitively manages impacts on existing residents
  • Place-making and sustainability: supporting an inclusive and welcoming community that is socially, economically and environmentally sustainable
  • Aboriginal outcomes: support and enhance positive outcomes for the local Aboriginal community through planning, delivery and operations
  • Strong partnerships: collaborate with the community, not-for-profit and private sectors to deliver great housing, place and social outcomes

Our focus areas for renewal will be on housing and infrastructure to support a mixed community, planning for relocations, and creating a framework for Connecting with Country and place-making. The existing human services workstream led by DCJ will also begin investigating future human services needs through the redevelopment.

Consistent with other estate renewal projects, LAHC is looking to proceed with procurement around the middle of this year while DPE are finalising the Waterloo South Planning Proposal. This process will take about 18 months to complete. In parallel, LAHC plan on undertaking soil testing across waterloo south to inform procurement. Further information on the project, including procurement and contamination testing, will be provided soon via a newsletter, website material and updates on social media.
