Affordable Housing and the RWA North Eveleigh Concept Plan May 2008
This document is a compilation of references on the RWA’s North Eveleigh Concept Plan referring to Affordable Housing. The list has been prepared by searching all documents for the term “affordable” in relation to housing. It includes the documents on exhibition as well as the Minister’s media statement, the RWA newsletter and the RWA evidence on affordable housing to the Inquiry into Indigenous Disadvantage. It is intended as an easy reference document for those with an interest in Affordable housing who do not have time to go through all the RWA documents associated with the North Eveleigh Concept Plan. It should be noted that the RWA Affordable Housing Contributions Plan 2006 avoided all questions about how affordable housing would be delivered by saying these would be handled in the Redfern-Waterloo Affordable Housing Program. No such programme has gone on exhibition or been released by the RWA and yet they are now making announcements which should be based on such a document. The following extracts were compiled by Geoff Turnbull for REDWatch 17 May 2008.

File RWA BEP 1 Traffic Study
This is a copy of the September 2006 "Preliminary Traffic and Transport Strategy for Draft Built Environment Plan (Stage 1)". In meeting with Parsons Brinckerhoff and the RWA to clarify traffic issues in the "Traffic and Transport Impact Assessment North Eveleigh Development" residents were advised that many of the issues raised had been dealt with in the BEP 1. The RWA subsequently made available a printed copy of the report which we have scanned and added an OCR overlay. A text PDF version of the report has been requested and if made available we will replace the scanned file with the original PDF. As this is an OCR version any text extracted from the report must be checked for errors against the underlying scanned copy before use. The BEP report contains figures for some of the key intersections and queue lengths which have not been included in the final report. Please note however that these are only indicative as the final report is based on later projections. REDWatch has requested that the traffic intersection movements for all intersections as well as the queue lengths from the new study be made available with the RWA promised Q&As not yet released.
