South Eveleigh Train Workshop Redevelopment (Large Erecting Shop)

In June 2022 Mirvac did a pre-lodgement consultation for a rezoning of the Large Erecting Shop which has been renamed the "South Eveleigh Train Workshop". This section deals with the redevelopment of this heritage site. The rezoning is being down by Transport for NSW on behalf of Mirvac. The site has been used as an operational and restoration base for heritage locomotives and trains since it became the operational base for 3801 Ltd. Mirvac secured first rights on the site should it become surplus to Transport for NSW needs. This transfer is being planned as the site still contains important state heritage assets.

File REDWatch Submission on Large Erecting Shop (LES)
This is a copy of the REDWatch LES submission of 24 November 2022. Given that the site has not yet been transferred to Mirvac and there are a number of NSW Government players involved and their decisions will impact the final site outcome, REDWatch have raised a number of these issues in its submission. Some of which will be outside the direct scope of the rezoning but will impact upon the final outcome for the LES redevelopment and on what should be acceptable additional floor space within the LES.
