Mayor's Community Message

21 August 2019
Final days of consultation for ‘The New Heart of Ryde’ 

Only a few days remain for the community to have its say on ‘The New Heart of Ryde’ – Council’s bold new vision for a new cultural and community hub at the Ryde Civic Centre site.

This is your last chance to tell us what you think before it goes to Council in September for a decision.  

For those who have not yet taken part in the consultation, I would strongly encourage you to do so before it closes this Sunday (25 August 2019) at or at one of our kiosks located at:

  • Top Ryde Shopping Centre, Ground floor, next to the lifts at TK Maxx
  • Council Customer Service Centre, Ground floor, under Ryde Library
  • Macquarie Centre, Level 4, next to the escalators at Dusk

If the project does move forward, the feedback received during this consultation will help shape the detailed design.

Have your say on Council’s new Children’s Plan

Consultation is now open on the draft Children’s Play Plan 2019.

The draft updates the current plan and aims to help Council deliver on its commitment to provide safe, accessible and sustainable high quality playgrounds.

A key feature of the updates is a renewed focus on inclusion and recognising that play spaces should cater to everyone including young and old, families and carers, as well as people of all abilities. These updates will make sure that inclusion is a priority when building new playgrounds and upgrading existing ones.

Mayor’s Morning Tea this Saturday

I hope to see all of you at Gladesville’s Monash Park from 10.30am this Saturday for the Mayor’s Morning Tea.

The Mayor’s Morning Tea is the perfect opportunity for members of the community to raise any issues with me that are impacting on them or simply to find out more information about the important projects Council is currently undertaking. 

There will be free activities for the kids as well as free coffee available throughout the morning. 

Yours Sincerely,

Clr Jerome Laxale
Mayor - City of Ryde
