File LAHC response to the Social Sustainability Study Report recommendations
The Waterloo South Social Sustainability Study contains a table with recommendations from the report and Land and Housing Corporation's (LAHC) response to those recommendations. As this is a key indicator of what LAHC has committed to in delivering a socially sustainable development we have extracted the table and made it easily accessible. The full amended Waterloo south social sustainability report can be downloaded from the City of Sydney Waterloo South webpage https://www.cityofsydney.nsw.gov.au/policy-planning-changes/planning-proposal-request-waterloo-estate-south. Parts of this table were missing from the initial version of the report released. When this was fixed it threw out page numbering so the adjusted report does not have page numbers in the first section and page titles were also deleted.
