Adapting to a new normal: 2021/22 Annual Report

This year’s Annual Report centres on the theme ADAPTING TO A NEW NORMAL.

It reflects the resilience and innovation shown by Council and the wider community in the face of many challenges, namely COVID-19 and adverse weather conditions, which continue to impact Council operations.

The phrase ‘new normal’ has been attributed to a world in which the effects of the pandemic and changing weather patterns resulting from climate change are being felt – in terms of physical, emotional and financial impacts – and we are all finding ways to adjust and pivot.

Despite these challenges, the City of Ryde continues to adapt and deliver for our community through our projects, programs, services and events.


The City of Ryde would like to acknowledge the Traditional Custodians of this land, the Wattamattagal (or Wallumedegal) clan of the Darug nation. The City of Ryde would also like to pay respect to Elders both past, present and extend that respect to other Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people.
