Major Project Application - MP 08_0015

A Major Project Application was lodged by the RWA in January 2008 with the Department of Planning for the Redevelopment for residential, commercial, retail and cultural uses of North Eveleigh. On March 13 2008 the Minister for Planning declared the proposal to be a major project under Part 3A of the Environmental Planning and Assessment Act 1979 and authorised a Concept Plan to be submitted. The Director-General’s Requirements were issued on 17th March 2008 and project was added to the public register on 7th April 2008. On May 1 2008 the Concept Plan went on Public Exhibition until June 12 2008. On 7th October 2008 the Department of Planning posted the RWA's response to the exhibition comments and the resulting proposed modifications in their Preferred project report. The Preferred Project report will now be assessed by the Department who will make a determination on the project. The details of the DoP listing and link to documents on 7th October is below:

REDWatch Note:

The Major projects page at the Department of planning changes almost daily as new documents are added and it is very difficult for people to keep track of the changes. We check the site periodically and will update this page as we become aware of any changes but to be sure you have the latest documents you should check the various sites for any new information. 

This page is put together to help you find Major Project proposals concerning this area. New Applications and the Director Generals Requirements (DGRs) for the project will show up on Register of major projects - Metropolitan Area. When the application is received from the developer in line with the DGR’s and is ready for public exhibition the listing moves to Major projects part 3A - On Exhibition. After the Minister has made a determination on the project the documents move to the Notices of Determination section of the Department of Planning’s website and then into the Archive of Approvals.
