The site is located in the Bayside West Precinct of Arncliffe, Banksia and Cooks Cove. The Department of Planning and Environment (DPE) exhibited plans to rezone and revitalise these communities and transform sections of the Princes Highway into a tree-lined boulevard.
The Arncliffe and Banksia Precincts have now been rezoned to implement the Bayside West Precincts 2036 Plan.
There are currently 142 social housing units on the site which, through the proposed rezoning, could make way for a mix of approximately 600 social, affordable and private dwellings in the future (news release).
DPE is reviewing submissions made during the exhibition period and will make a recommendation to the Minister for Planning later this year on the outcomes of the rezoning process.
Selecting a development partner
On 9 May 2018, the NSW Minister for Social Housing, the Hon. Pru Goward MP, announced the start of the Expressions of Interest (EOI) process to find a private sector and not-for-profit organisation to work with the NSW Government on the redevelopment the Eden Street, Arncliffe estate.
Minister Goward announced on 26 September 2018 that Arncliffe was one step closer to being revitalized with shortlisted applicants now invited to submit detailed plans for the redevelopment of the estate including concept designs. The EOI closed on 13 June 2018.
Submissions will be assessed in early 2019 with the intention to announce a development partner for the Arncliffe Redevelopment project in mid 2019.
