New sessions and website for Heritage Review 2019

In response to community feedback, the City of Ryde has created new heritage information sessions that will be tailored to the different heritage types. Council has also updated the website, which provides further details on the Heritage Review 2019.

The website is full of helpful information on proposed heritage properties and proposed heritage conservation areas, as well as answers to frequently asked questions. There is also an interactive online map that shows where the proposed items are located. In addition, members of the public can also complete an online survey, register for one of the upcoming information sessions and submit specific questions on the Heritage Review 2019.

The online hub follows the decision by the City of Ryde to extend consultation on the Heritage Review 2019 by a further two weeks, to Sunday 10 November.

Be fantastic, cut single-use plastic

At the City of Ryde we have led the way in protecting the local environment by becoming one of the first councils to prohibit the use of single-use plastics at Council events and phasing out their use in all Council operations.

In order to help local businesses follow suit, we are staging a free Sustainable Solutions Expo at Ryde Civic Hall on Thursday 7 November.

At this event, businesses will get the chance to learn how they can make their organisation a sustainable one. There will be free toolkits available, the chance to learn new sustainable tips and skills, as well as the opportunity to meet sustainable suppliers.

For more information and to register for this event click here. 

Yours Sincerely,
