Paint Shop sub-precinct rezoning proposal

Transport for NSW (TfNSW) prepared a rezoning proposal for the Paint Shop sub-precinct. The rezoning proposal was exhibited for comment from 26 July to 25 August 2022.

The department was responsible for gathering submissions and evaluating the proposal. All feedback received during public exhibition informed the final rezoning package and helped shape the future of Redfern North Eveleigh.

The rezoning has now been finalised.

The commencement of the new planning controls has been deferred until 30 June 2023. This will allow time for infrastructure funding arrangements to be finalised which will secure contributions towards local infrastructure and affordable housing.

The Paint Shop sub-precinct is located within the broader Tech Central district, with flexible floor space options for technology and innovation industries, new public open space and a range of housing.

The Carriageworks and Clothing Store sub-precincts are not affected by this proposal or its finalisation.

The rezoning will deliver:

  • employment floor space to support up to 6,400 jobs 
  • 320 dwellings, with a minimum of 15% of affordable housing and a minimum of 15% of diverse housing
  • 1.12 hectares of new public open space
  • 3,700 square metres of community and cultural floor space for residents and workers, including a dedicated space for the Aboriginal community
  • new pedestrian and cyclist routes, including direct pedestrian connections to the new Southern Concourse at Redfern Station.
