Danks Street South precinct in Waterloo

The City of Sydney invites your feedback on a proposal to amend planning controls that will guide future development of the Danks Street South precinct in Waterloo. The site is bounded by Danks, Bourke, McEvoy and Morehead streets.

The draft planning controls define where new apartments, shops, parks, roads and walking and bike riding connections would be located. New development will complement the existing vibrant community in this area. The precinct is also close to the new community facilities in the Green Square town centre.

The proposal would allow for:

•approximately 1,275 new homes, including affordable housing (potentially accommodating up to 2,500 residents)

•two public parks totalling 5,460 square meters

•new local streets, including shared zones for people walking and riding

•a plaza area that surrounds the heritage-listed buildings.

The proposal seeks to amend the maximum building heights in the precinct to mainly four to six storeys. It would also allow one 20-storey tower and one 16-storey tower. This proposal doesn’t change the existing zoning or floor space ratio (density).

You can view all the information for this proposal in the Document Library, including a document providing an overview of the draft planning controls. Printed copies will also be on exhibition at the locations listed on this page.


Come to our Information Session

You’re invited to an information session outside Danks Street Plaza on Crystal Street, Waterloo, on Thursday 18 May from 4pm to 7pm. You will be able to see the proposal, ask questions and give feedback to City staff.

Have your say by filling out our submissions form below.


Next steps

After the exhibition, the City will consider all submissions and report the outcomes to Council and the Central Sydney Planning Committee. If Council approves the planning proposal, it can amend the Sydney Local Environmental Plan 2012 on behalf of the Greater Sydney Commission.
