28 April 2011

On 15 December 2010, the State Environmental Planning Policy (Urban Renewal) 2010 (Urban Renewal SEPP) commenced. The Urban Renewal SEPP plays an important role in implementing the Metropolitan Plan for Sydney 2036, which will require 70% of population growth in existing areas, necessitating the renewal of existing urban areas.

The key principles underlying the Urban Renewal SEP are:

  • integration of land use planning with existing or planned infrastructure to create revitalised local communities;
  • providing greater access to public transport; and
  • providing a broader range of housing and employment options.

The Urban Renewal SEPP will operate in conjunction withthe Sydney Metropolitan Development Authority (SMDA) to coordinate urban renewal in Sydney including in the Redfern-Waterloo area.
