Former Rachel Forster Hospital

This site was zoned as medium density residential with maximum heights of 3 to 6 storeys and a FSR of 2:1 by the RWA under BEP1. The medical centre fronting Albert St was moved to a new medical centre in the Old Court House Building and Former Police station. A Concept Plan was developed by the RWA and Approved by the Department of Planning. Following this the site was sold for redevelopment as housing and a public park. The developer is currently preparing documents for a Project Approval. This will then be publicly exhibited for comment.
