Letter to the Minister

The Hon. Frank Sartor MP
Minister for Redfern-Waterloo
Parliament House
Macquarie Street

Dear Minister Sartor

It is with pleasure that I forward you the inaugural Annual Report for the Redfern-Waterloo Authority for the period January – June 2005.

This report has been prepared in accordance with NSW Annual Report legislation and the Redfern-Waterloo Act 2004 No 107.

Yours Sincerely

Robert Domm
Chief Executive Officer
Redfern-Waterloo Authority

Statement from the Chairperson and Chief Executive Officer

We have great pleasure in welcoming you to the first Annual Report for the Redfern-Waterloo Authority 2004/05.

We are extremely pleased with the progress we have made since commencing operation, and while it may be early days, the staff at the new Redfern-Waterloo Authority are working hard to revitalise the Redfern-Waterloo area.

The RWA opened its doors on January 17 this year and it has a big job to do. Its tasks include generating jobs for the people of the area, improving delivery of services to the community and promoting urban renewal that respects and strengthens the rich heritage that makes this community unique in Sydney. Many activities are already well and truly underway, particularly in the area of job creation schemes for local unemployed, with a particular emphasis on the Indigenous community.

We are also developing a Human Services Plan that will improve the delivery of social services to the community. The Redfern-Waterloo Plan, of which human services is a part, will also facilitate urban renewal and heritage restoration opportunities at North Eveleigh and other surplus government lands, seek a sustainable solution for the Block and its environs and implement a community consultation strategy that will include regular newsletters to residents providing news of latest events and activities, setting up an interactive website, quarterly community forums and smaller community meetings on specific issues.

The Redfern-Waterloo Plan is being developed in stages, with priority being given to economic revitalisation, human services and job creation. A draft of Stage One of the Redfern-Waterloo Plan concerning the first three years of the RWA’s operations, is expected to be released for further community consultation before the end of the year and will centre on a number of sites declared to be State Significant Developments.

The Redfern-Waterloo Authority is also investigating essential developments for an accessible, efficient railway station. A Station with steep steps and no easy access for elderly or disabled people and parents with young children, it’s the eighth busiest Station in the NSW network - a role which will increase in activity as the population grows.

Redevelopment will improve access to and the efficiency of RailCorp operations and include commercial activity.

We have also announced the finalisation of appointments to the three Ministerial Advisory Committees set up to advise the Minister responsible for Redfern-Waterloo on matters relating to built environment, employment and enterprise and the delivery of social services in the area.

We look forward to continuing to build the RWA to meet the challenges and opportunities now faced by the Redfern-Waterloo area and its community.

Robert Domm
Chief Executive Officer

David Richmond AO


The Redfern-Waterloo Authority (RWA) was created by a NSW Government Act of Parliament in Oct 04 (Redfern-Waterloo Authority Act 2004 No 107) and established on 17 January 2005.

RWA is responsible for revitalising Redfern, Waterloo, Eveleigh and Darlington through urban renewal, job creation and improved human services in consideration of social, economic, ecological and other sustainable development, public spaces, Aboriginal community needs, social cohesion and community safety.

The principle objectives of the RWA will be delivered as a result of the NSW Government’s 10-year Redfern-Waterloo Plan, which will be publicly exhibited prior to adoption – tentatively November 2005. The Plan is being designed as a ‘whole of community’ strategy designed to address the complex issues of, and the needs of people who live within, the Redfern-Waterloo community.

State Significant Development

Australian Technology Park

The Redfern-Waterloo Authority Act also provides for the Minister for Redfern-Waterloo and the RWA to be delegated as the consent authority for any development within its area of operation declared to be State Significant Development.

Australian Technology Park (ATP) at the former railway workshops at Eveleigh falls under this jurisdiction.

Ownership of ATP was transferred from the Sydney Harbour Foreshore Authority (SHFA) to the RWA in January, 2005 with planned development on the ATP site over the next two to three years expected to create 2,000 new jobs – a 10 percent employment increase for the Redfern-Waterloo area.

New ATP Building

The new NICTA/DSTO building is the first in a new development phase for the ATP.

The ATP Master Plan includes provision for six new sites and up to 14 low-rise buildings (two to seven storeys) over the next decade. Designed by Cox Richardson Architects, the NICTA/DSTO building will be located on the eastern edge of the ATP with frontages to Garden Street and Mitchell Way.

It will occupy a site of around 3,000sqm and provide just over 11,000sqm of tenantable floor space with 66 secure parking spaces.

The building will also have a 4.5 Star rating under the Australian Building Greenhouse Rating scheme (ABGR). Construction will be in accordance with the RWA’s Jobs Compact, employing local indigenous people and new apprentices as a key element. It will bring 600 jobs to Redfern.

Frank Sartor MP invited Expressions of Interest from residents of Redfern, Waterloo, Eveleigh and Darlington to participate in any of three Ministerial Advisory Committees with community representatives appointed as individuals to each Committee:

Independent Audit Report

To Members of the New South Wales Parliament

Audit Opinion

In my opinion, the financial report of the Redfern-Waterloo Authority:

(a) presents fairly the Authority’s and the consolidated entity’s financial position as at 30 June 2005 financial performance and cash flows for the period ended on that date, in accordance with applicable Accounting Standards and other mandatory professional reporting requirements in Australia, and

(b) complies with section 41B of the Public Finance and Audit Act 1983 (the Act).

My opinion should be read in conjunction with the rest of this report.

The Board’s Role

The financial report is the responsibility of the members of the Board. It consists of the statements of financial position, the statements of financial performance, the statements of cash flows and the accompanying notes for the Authority and the consolidated entity. The consolidated entity comprises the Authority and the entities controlled at the year’s end or during the financial period.

Auditor’s Role and the Audit Scope

As required by the Act, I carried out an independent audit to enable me to express an opinion on the financial report.

My audit provides reasonable assurance to Members of the New South Wales Parliament that the financial report is free of material misstatement.

My audit accorded with Australian Auditing and Assurance Standards and statutory requirements, and I:

• evaluated the accounting policies and significant accounting estimates used by the Board in preparing

the financial report, and

• examined a sample of the evidence that supports the amounts and other disclosures in the financial report.

An audit does not guarantee that every amount and disclosure in the financial report is error free. The terms ‘reasonable assurance’ and ‘material’ recognise that an audit does not examine all evidence and transactions. However, the audit procedures used should identify errors or omissions significant enough to adversely affect decisions made by users of the financial report or indicate that Board members had not fulfilled their reporting obligations.

My opinion does not provide assurance:

• about the future viability of the Authority or its controlled entities,

• that they have carried out their activities effectively, efficiently and economically, or

• about the effectiveness of their internal controls.

Audit Independence

The Audit Office complies with all applicable independence requirements of Australian professional ethical pronouncements.

The Act further promotes independence by:

• providing that only Parliament, and not the executive government, can remove an Auditor-General, and

• mandating the Auditor-General as auditor of public sector agencies but precluding the provision of non-audit services, thus ensuring the Auditor-General and the Audit Office are not compromised in their role by the possibility of losing clients or income.

David Jones, FCPA
Director, Financial Audit Services
SYDNEY, 4 November 2005
