The RED Strategy

Consultation for the RED Strategy was started in June 2003 by Cox Richardson for the RWPP. When the consultation ended in December 2003 the community was told it would be considered by the NSW Government and then come back for further community consultation before going to the local council for consideration. Instead in late 2004 the NSW Government announced the establishment of the RWA. Neither the Draft RED Stategy nor the reports from the various consultants have been released by the Government despite numerous requests that this information be released to inform community discussion about the RWA and the proposed Redfern Waterloo Plan.

This is the RED Strategy timeline that the community was told it would have for consultation before the RED Strategy was implimented. This copy is from the NSW Governments submission to the Legislative Council Inquiry into Redfern Waterloo and shows the City of Sydney Council as the Local Council through which it would be handled. File size is 80kb.
RED Strategy Community Consultation Program
At the December 2003 Community Forum a proposed Consultation Program, which set out how the future consultation on the RED Strategy would be undertaken, was presented to the community by the RWPP. In stead of following this process the government decided to set up the RWA and not bring the Strategy back for community consultation or to put it through local council.
Major RED Issues Identified
These Major Issues were presented to the December 3 2003 Community Forum after consideration by the RWPP Community Council which added the wording "no reduction in public housing".
