How to make a submission on Waterloo Metro Quarter Exhibitions by 30 January 2019

Below we have combined the instructions for making submissions on both the Waterloo Metro Quarter SSP and the SSDA. The community, government agencies and project stakeholders can make submissions until 30 January 2019.

The proposals on Exhibition

There are two related Department of Planning and Environment (DPE) exhibitions happening simultaneously for the Waterloo Metro Quarter. As the two exhibitions are linked it is possible to make the same submission for both.

The first exhibition is for the State Significant Precinct (SSP) that sets the new planning controls. The SSP also has all the supporting studies required to support the proposed planning controls. The proponent of the SSP is UrbanGrowth NSW. It has produced a SSP summary here.

The second exhibition is a Concept State Significant Development Application (SSDA) that proposes a concept for the Metro site based on the planning controls proposed in the SSP. The SSDA has different studies set by a different part of DPE. The proponent of the SSDA is Sydney Metro. It has produced a SSDA summary here.

As the second (SSDA) exhibition is based on the planning controls in the first (SSP) you should be able to base your comments on the SSP documents.

You can find out more about the SSP and the SSDA and ask questions at the UrbanGrowth information sessions.

Links to all relevant documents can be found on the REDWatch website at Waterloo Metro Quarter SSP and DA Exhibitions until 30 January 2019 and at the locations below where you make an online submission.

How to make a submission

Below we have combined the instructions for making submissions on the SSP and the SSDA. The community, government agencies and project stakeholders can all make submissions.

You must make your submission to the NSW Department of Planning and Environment (DPE). Comments to the proponents, UrbanGrowth NSW or Sydney Metro do not count as submissions.

DPE will collate submissions and publish them on its website. It is DPE’s policy to place a copy of your submission on its website. If you do not want your name made available to UrbanGrowth NSW or Sydney Metro, or to appear on DPE’s website, please clearly state this in your submission.

Your submission must reach the DPE by 30 January 2019 and must include:

—      Your name and address

—      The name of your application

—      The reference “Waterloo Metro Quarter SSP” and or “SSD18_9393”

—      A brief statement on whether you support or object to the proposal

—      The reasons why you support or object to the proposal.

—      Declare if you have donated more than $1000 to a political party (see notes)

—      State clearly if you do not want your submission made public (see notes)

Submissions can be in languages other than English. Contact Adam Antonelli at The Factory wrcd@counterpointcs.org.au or the bilingual workers if you need help.

Your submission can be made via the internet or by post.

Submit via the internet: There are two different places to make a submission. If you wish to submit to both SSP and SSDA you will need to copy and paste between both of the DPE sites. The sites are:

Submit by post: To comment on both exhibitions by post you only need to reference both “Waterloo Metro Quarter SSP” and “SSD18_9393” at the beginning of your submission.

Following the exhibition period

Issues raised in these submissions will be summarised in submissions reports.

For the SSP, UrbanGrowth NSW will consider the issues raised and may make changes to address submissions. The Minister for Planning will then decide whether to approve the SSP rezoning proposal

For the SSDA, Sydney Metro will consider the issues raised, and may make changes to the project because of submissions. The Minister for Planning will then make a decision about whether to approve the concept SSDA.

If the over station development proceeds, consultation with key stakeholders and the community will continue during the preparation and assessment of the detailed State Significant Development application, and the construction and operation phases.

This ongoing engagement process will play an important role in reducing potential impacts and enhancing the benefits for all stakeholders.
