Part 3 of Planning Ryde considers how Council can deliver a city in which our community wants to – and is able to – live, work and play, while maintain the aspects of our local character and community that we most value.

Specific areas covered by Part 3 of Planning Ryde and, related guiding vision statements, include: 

Putney Hill and surrounds

Housing supply, affordability, diversity and amenity

The housing needs and expectations of the City of Ryde community will be met through the provision of a range of housing types including affordable housing.

Trim Place, Gladesville

Key Centres 

The City of Ryde’s five centres – Ryde, Eastwood, West Ryde, Gladesville and Shepherds Bay – will be compact, sustainable, mixed centres servicing their local neighbourhoods. Each will have a distinct identity drawn from its history and community. These centres will be accessible and connected.

Café opening, Macquarie Park)


Heritage and places of cultural significance that are valued by the community – including historic buildings, landscape items and places with natural and Aboriginal significance – will be well managed, conserved and positively promoted to enhance the community’s sense of place.
