File Index of Disadvantage - Socio-economic profile for the Redfern-Waterloo Operational Area, 1996 and 2001
This map appears in the Draft RWA Affordable Housing Contributions Plan. The Plan states: "The loss of low cost private housing due to gentrification and a combination of the increased targeting of public housing to those most in need and its concentration in certain precincts has also led to a growing polarisation in the community. Even comparing socio-economic profiles of the area for 1996 and 2001, a relatively short period, it is possible to detect the change in the community. Figures 1 and 2 shows a significant increase in areas of advantage (shaded green) across the Operational Area from 1996 to 2001 and demonstrate the effects of gentrification. However, they also reveal increased levels of polarisation with areas of high disadvantage (shaded dark blue) directly adjoining areas of high advantage (shaded dark green). Given current trends and the potential for further development in the area, there is a real danger that this will lead to further polarisation."

File TNSW Precincts with forecast significant population and employment growth between 2011 and 2031
The Draft NSW Long Term Transport Master Plan released on 10 September 2012 contains this map as Figure 4.39. The map shows precincts with forecast significant population and employment growth between 2011 and 2031 in Central Sydney. It shows Darlington & West Redfern along with East Chippendale as Growth Precincts. The proposed redevelopment of Redfern and Waterloo Public Housing is not shown as a Growth Precinct on this map and neither is Ashmore Estate. The Map is hence interesting for both what it shows for a Heritage Conservation Area like Darlington and what it does not show. File is 474 KB PDF.
