The Department has worked with the local community, landowners and Ryde Council to identify opportunities to revitalise the Macquarie University Station precinct (Herring Road) to provide for new public spaces, shops, cafes, jobs and homes.
Key features of the new precinct plan include:
The rezoning proposal for the Macquarie University Station (Herring Road) precinct was finalised in September 2015.
Feedback from the community has played an important part in developing the plans for the precinct. Consultation included:
In November 2012, the NSW Government endorsed Macquarie University Station (Herring Road) as a Priority Precinct.
The precinct includes Macquarie University and Macquarie Shopping Centre, and is close to the employment opportunities offered by Macquarie Park. The precinct is well serviced by public transport including bus services, the Epping to Chatswood rail line and in the future, Sydney Metro Northwest rail line.
The precinct will deliver up to 5,800 new homes by 2031, which will include the redevelopment of Ivanhoe Estate – transforming 259 existing social housing dwellings into a neighbourhood with at least 556 social housing dwellings.
The plans will transform the area into a vibrant centre that makes the most of the available transport infrastructure and the precinct’s proximity to jobs, retail and education opportunities within the Macquarie Park corridor.
