Redfern Waterloo Heritage Taskforce

In early 2010 the Redfern Waterloo established the Redfern Waterloo Heritage Taskforce and subsequently a Eveleigh Steering Committee. Here you can find out more about the RWHT and ESC.
Redfern Waterloo Heritage Taskforce (RWHT)
The Redfern Waterloo Heritage Taskforce (RWHT) was set up late 2009 by Mininster for Redfern Waterloo Kristina Keneally with the purpose of "to identify opportunities for the active conservation, interpretation and, where appropriate, the adaptive reuse of the cultural, natural and archaeological heritage of the Redfern Waterloo area in tandem with the revitalisation and renewal of the area. The Taskforce seeks to achieve enhanced public understanding of the history of the area and its significance to residents, workers and visitors and will include the promotion of the unique heritage and culture of this area through the fostering of active links with the community, as well as with tourism, education and recreation activities." Here you will find information about the RWHT.
RWA Heritage Information
The RWA has a heritage page on their website which contains details about the Redfern Waterloo Heritage Taskforce and the Eveleigh Steering Committee. You can view the latest on the RWA website on this link.

File Eveleigh Railway Workshops Interpretation Plan - March 2012
Eveleigh Railway Workshops Interpretation Plan was released in March 2012 following Public Exhibition in April 2011. This is an Interpretation Plan and Implementation Strategy for the former Eveleigh Railway Workshops. The Plan has been prepared for the RWA's Redfern Waterloo Heritage Taskforce by 3D Projects in association with Artscape and Only Human. The plan is complimented by a report on the 2010 Field Day Report which captured some Eveleigh worker stories. File is 3MB PDF.
File The Eveleigh Field Day Project Report
The Eveleigh Field Day Project Report was released in March 2012 with the Eveleigh Railway Workshops Interpretation Plan. The Report has been prepared for the RWA's Redfern Waterloo Heritage Taskforce by 3D Projects in association with Artscape and Only Human who conducted a Field Day as a part of their preparation of the Eveleigh Railway Workshops Interpretation Plan. The 2010 Field Day Report captured some Eveleigh worker stories. File is 1.6MB PDF.
File Eveleigh Railway Workshops Interpretation Plan - Draft and Final Comparison
REDWatch has produced a document which compares the Draft Eveleigh Railway Workshops Interpretation Plan exhibited in April 2011 with the Final Report released in March 2012. No report setting out the issues raised in submissions was produced by the RWA / SMDA, nor was there anything that explained why some submission ideas were not accepted or what had changed. One area of concern to REDWatch is that there is no replacement body to deal with Heritage issues across the entire site. This document is provided so it is easy to see what has changed from the Draft. It shows both reports side by side with the deletions and additions shown in colour. It is electronically produced and is a guide only and to be certain of a change the two documents should be manually checked. This is a large document at 7MB PDF.
Eveleigh Heritage Plan finalised
The SMDA has released on its website the Eveleigh Railway Workshops Interpretation Plan following Public Exhibition in April 2011 and Ministerial approval. Also released was the 2010 Eveleigh Field Day Project Report which included some great stories of ex-workers. Together they provide some good stories, and an overview of the heritage significance of Eveleigh, how it can be preserved and celebrated writes Geoff Turnbull in the April 2012 edition of The South Sydney Herald.
Council Resolution in Support of Eveleigh Railway Heritage
Council’s Planning and Development Committee on 20 August 2013 dealt with a report from Council Officers regarding the Eveleigh Railway Workshops. At Council on 26th August Council resolved to request the Minister to re-establish the Redfern Waterloo Heritage Taskforce and if this did not eventuate within a reasonable period of time Council will use its good offices to convene a meeting of interested parties. Below is the motion from the Council Minutes.
File Redfern Waterloo Heritage Taskforce Final Report 2011
The Redfern Waterloo Heritage Taskforce was established to report by March 2011, the end of the Keneally Gopvernment's term. This is the final report of the RWHT. The RWHT recomended that there should be an ongoing mechanism for Heritage Co-ordination around the former Eveleigh Railway Workshops. Attempts are still being made to re-establish such a heritage co-ordination mechanism. File is 143 KB PDF.
