What we’re doing

We asked for feedback to help shape a community vision and plan for Redfern in November and December 2022.

We heard that in the future the community see the neighbourhood as:

  • a place that celebrates its Aboriginal culture and history
  • a place that is green and cool with native trees and plants
  • a safe place to move around and play
  • a place where people feel a sense of connection and belonging
  • a place where the community can come together to socialise and celebrate.

This community vision has helped us shape a plan to improve the local parks and streets. We now invite you to provide feedback on the draft plan.

The plan involves 3 main opportunities:

  • improvements to Redfern Community Centre Park
  • improvements to Yellowmundee Park and Hugo Street Reserve
  • slowing traffic and greening the streets.

Neighbourhood boundary

The map shows the areas we consider part of this work. The blue boundary shows the broader Redfern/Darlington neighbourhood and the orange boundary shows the area around the Redfern Community Centre, which is the focus of this plan.

Map shows the Redfern/Darlington neighbourhood bounded by Cleveland Street in the north, Shepherd, Lander and Condrington streets in the west, Wilson Street and Little Eveleigh Street in the south, bounded by the railway line from Redfern station to the Cleveland Street bridge in the east. The map highlights the particular focus area for this consultation which is bounded by Abercrombie Street, Cleveland Street, Woodburn Street and Lawson Street.

Why we’re doing this

This is part of a broader piece of work looking at the public domain in the Redfern and Waterloo area. These suburbs are undergoing significant change with redevelopment of several major sites and new transport infrastructure at Redfern station and the new Waterloo metro station. These changes will affect the way the public domain works with more residents and workers using the streets and public spaces.

We’ll work with our communities to develop an overarching public domain plan and neighbourhood visions to inform future projects. This local neighbourhood plan is the first to be developed.

How you can give feedback

Consultation closes at 5pm on Thursday 20 July 2023.
