Draft Local Strategic Planning Statement

Submissions closed on 12 August 2019, 11:59 PM


We are currently planning how the City of Ryde Local Government Area will look and function in the future, and want your feedback on what’s important to you.

We are preparing the Local Strategic Planning Statement (LSPS) which outlines how Council plans to deliver a high-quality lifestyle and increased opportunities to work, live and play in Ryde. It sets out our 20-year vision, planning priorities and actions.

The feedback you provide will be used to finalise this document. We are focusing on aligning infrastructure with growth, and making sure suburbs look and function the way you want them to.

We are particularly interested in your feedback, ideas and views on the following:

  • Housing: delivering a diverse range of housing options to meet community needs, with an emphasis on character and location.
  • Transport: improvements to local infrastructure, and advocating to the State and Federal Government for the right transport connections.
  • Open space and active recreation: making the most of our open space, increasing green space and expanding outdoor active recreation spaces.
  • Indoor recreation: increasing indoor recreation facilities across Ryde.
  • Green links: creating more walking and cycling connections across Ryde, as well as increasing street trees and shade.
  • Creative enterprise: supporting start-ups and small businesses to flourish.
  • West Ryde:  Breathing new life into the town centre.
  • Macquarie Park: transforming the area into a vibrant and accessible CBD that balances work and play.

About the LSPS

The LSPS has been informed by the Community Strategic Plan, the plan for the City of Ryde, by the people of the City of Ryde. The vision described in this Plan has been directly built into the priorities and actions of the LSPS. The LSPS is designed to be read alongside the Community Strategic Plan, to build on its content rather than replace it.

The LSPS gives clarity to the community on the area’s future, offering a better understanding to help visualise changes to your local area.
