Carlton United Brewery Site

The former CUB Site is outside the RWA operational area however the legislation which established the RWA laid claim to the affordable housing levy from this site. This resulted in a three way interest in the site between the City of Sydney, the RWA and the owner. In June 2006 the Central Sydney Planning Committee, following a letter for Minister of Planning & Minister for Redfern Waterloo, voted 4 (state Appointees) to 3 (council appointees) for the Minister of Planning to take control of the site.
