What we’re doing

In November 2022 we worked with the community to develop a vision for the parks and streets surrounding the Redfern Community Centre.

We presented the draft plans for the neighbourhood to the community for feedback in July 2023. We received submissions from 118 people during the consultation.

This feedback helped us to revise our plans for the parks surrounding the Redfern Community Centre.

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 showing boundary of the Redfern/Darlington neighbourhood: Cleveland, Little Eveleigh, Wilson, Codrington, Lander, and Shepherd streets. Inset is the smaller focus area, bounded by Abercrombie, Cleveland and Lawson streets.

Why we’re doing this

This is part of our broader piece of work looking at the public domain in the Redfern and Waterloo area. These suburbs are undergoing significant change with the 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.
