We want more people to have the option to live and work in the City of Ryde. To make this happen, Council will encourage new investment, local jobs and business opportunities.
Specific areas covered by Part 4 of Planning Ryde and, related guiding vision statements, include:
The economy and jobs
Ensure the Ryde LGA will be well-designed and planned to encourage new investment, local jobs and business opportunities in an environment of innovation, progression and economic growth. This approach will give more people the option to live and work in the Ryde LGA.
Macquarie Park will mature into a premium location for globally competitive business fostering collaboration between university, government, business and research institutes. It will become a vibrant, accessible CBD that balances work, recreation and entertainment. Macquarie Park will be characterised by a high-quality, well-designed, safe and liveable environment that reflects the natural setting, with three accessible and vibrant train station areas providing focal points. Housing will be focused in the Urban Activation Precincts (North Ryde Station Precinct and Macquarie University Station Precinct) providing opportunities for people to live and work in the area with supporting services and events that will bring vibrancy to the area beyond office hours.
