Precinct update: North Eveleigh
30 June 2016
A report on consultation on the final draft of the North Eveleigh concept plan is now available. The outcomes report provides a record of what we heard during the consultation between 22 March and 17 April this year. The community was invited to have their say on the design of the new park, preferred community uses for the historic Clothing Store building and the approach to public art and heritage in the area, including suggestions for locally significant names for streets and places.
More than 100 people attended an information session and nearly 20 people participated in the open space and community uses workshop. Around 15 people also contributed online. Their ideas and feedback have informed the final detailed design for North Eveleigh that will be lodged with the Department of Planning and Environment for public exhibition.
North Eveleigh will be the first precinct to be delivered under the Central to Eveleigh Urban Transformation and Transport Program. We expect to submit a state significant development application for North Eveleigh to the Department of Planning and Environment in the coming months. A summary of all North Eveleigh consultation, including the latest round, will be provided with the application.
Whilst we have listened to local community concerns in respect to the height of some buildings we continue to believe that the impacts of retaining this height are outweighed in this case by the chance to provide more homes for Sydney in a great and well serviced location. That being said, all of the community will have the opportunity to comment on the application through the Department’s public exhibition process and we’ll keep everyone updated on the opportunities.
This was the third round of consultation on the plans for new homes, open space and community facilities at North Eveleigh. You can also learn more about previous consultation on North Eveleigh through the April–July 2015 and October–November 2015 consultation reports at the Library.
