What we’re doing

With the Waterloo metro station set to open in 2024, the planned redevelopment of Waterloo estate and the growing worker population in Eveleigh south, now is the time to revisit how these streets can be safer, greener and healthier, while maintaining their vital transport functions.

Our local strategic planning statement, City Plan 2036, identifies the Botany Road corridor as an opportunity to provide much needed employment and business space including office, retail, community and cultural uses. We’re investigating planning changes to strengthen the employment role of the area and support night and day economic, social and cultural activity and safety. This may mean changes to building height, built form and land use controls to support employment growth.

The area holds enormous place, civil rights and social significance for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples and our wider communities.

Our work includes Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander engagement and consultation and studies on urban design, transport, noise, air quality and heritage. We’ve engaged Cox Inall Ridgeway to work with Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander community organisations and residents as part of this project.

The work will guide planning control recommendations to achieve the priorities and actions in City Plan 2036. We want to know what you think Botany Road and Regent, Wyndham and Gibbons streets should look and feel like in the future.
