Stage 1 Community Consultation Update

Published on 10 March 2021

Stage 1 of the West Ryde Town Centre Masterplan took place from 25 November 2020 to 22 January 2021. 

Throughout the consultation, over 130 local residents, businesses and community members completed the online survey and over 200 comments were made on the interactive online map. This feedback is now being used to help inform the draft Masterplan options for West Ryde Town Centre which Council is currently preparing.

What You Told Us

In the feedback Council received, the community identified the following key ideas as being important for the preparation of the West Ryde Town Centre Masterplan:

  • Improve pedestrian and cycle connections
  • Provide more public space to promote social and cultural events and opportunities
  • Provide more trees and improve connections to surrounding open space
  • Create activated laneways and preserving the heritage and fine-grain character
  • Improve traffic, transport, and parking
  • Provide diversity in housing options and built form 

Next Steps 

Council is now in the process of developing the draft Masterplan options for the West Ryde Town Centre. The draft Masterplan options will take into consideration Stage 1 community feedback, traffic and transport movements, infrastructure, and other planning matters (such as economic feasibility) which all influence renewal opportunities in West Ryde.

In the coming months, Council will be presenting the draft Masterplan options through Stage 2 community consultation where customers will have the opportunity to provide their  feedback through a number of engagement methods.
