Preliminary planning


Explorer Street, Eveleigh

Indicative land area:

2.3 ha

The NSW Government is exploring the rezoning and redevelopment of the Explorer Street social housing estate.

Our plan is to deliver more new social and affordable housing, along with open space, streets and amenities.

Proposed rezoning

The area proposed for rezoning includes social housing dwellings on Explorer Street and Aurora Place, but not nearby properties in Rowley Street, which are managed by Bridge Housing.

Feedback provided by the community in 2020 will help to inform the rezoning proposal.

The community will also have the opportunity to provide further input on the future of the precinct before rezoning can occur.

Social housing tenants

No tenants will be relocated from the Explorer Street estate before 2025.

If the rezoning goes ahead, other planning processes will also need to occur before redevelopment starts. This includes development approvals and detailed design.

More information

The NSW Government will keep the community informed as the project progresses.
