NSW Department of Planning and Environment

The North Ryde Station Precinct will provide new homes and jobs, new parks and public plazas, walking and cycling links and community facilities with direct access to North Ryde train station.

The North Ryde Station Precinct was rezoned in 2013 and provides:

  • more than 2.4 hectares of parks and open space – 20 percent of the entire precinct
  • new homes and jobs within a 10-minute walk of North Ryde Station
  • more than $17 million in transport upgrades
  • a new pedestrian and cyclist bridge over Delhi Road to improve access to the station
  • $6 million in Precinct Support Scheme funding towards Council’s delivery of a new public park in Macquarie Park
  • public plazas and a multi-purpose community facility
  • bush regeneration.

Key changes made to the plans in response to community feedback included:

  • removal of the Tennis World site from the precinct
  • removal of a government owned site adjoining Bundara Reserve
  • reducing maximum building heights around North Ryde Station by 16 metres.

Recent Development Approvals

In October 2015, approval was granted for a mixed use development at 1-7 Delhi Road, next to North Ryde Station. The development will provide 380 apartments in 4 buildings up to 14 storeys, and will include 366 car parking spaces, 350m² of retail space and a new public plaza around North Ryde Station, connecting Delhi Road and Station Street.

Approval for another mixed use development near the station, at 27-37 Delhi Road, known as ‘Ryde Garden’ was approved in July 2015. The development will contain 830 residential apartments in 3 buildings up to 27 storeys. The development will also include retail shops, a gym, childcare centre, 869 car parking spaces and a 2,100sqm public park.

Regional Road Upgrades

A voluntary planning agreement (VPA), between the Minister for Planning and UrbanGrowth NSW was signed in September 2015. The VPA will deliver $15 million of regional road upgrades, including widening works on Delhi Road, and intersection upgrades at Wicks Road and Epping Road, and Wicks Road and Waterloo Road.

The Department is continuing to work closely with City of Ryde Council and Transport for NSW to facilitate a co-funding agreement to deliver the remaining regional road upgrades required to support future growth in the Precinct.

Open Space

As part of the North Ryde Station Precinct rezoning, the Department provided $6 million in precinct support scheme funding to City of Ryde Council for a new park at 45-63 Waterloo Road, Macquarie Park.

The Department is continuing to work with Council and the site's landowner, Government Property NSW to secure the delivery of the new park.

In February 2016, Government Property NSW lodged a Planning Proposal with City of Ryde Council to rezone 7000m² of the site for public open space. Once rezoned, Council will begin the detailed design phase for the new park.

The community will have the opportunity to provide input into Council’s detailed planning and design of the new park.

Development Control Plan

The North Ryde Station Precinct Development Control Plan (DCP) was adopted in 2013.

In June 2015, the Secretary of the Department delegated her powers as the Relevant Planning Authority for the North Ryde Station Precinct DCP to City of Ryde Council.

City of Ryde Council adopted amendments to the North Ryde Station Precinct DCP in December 2015. These amendments ensure residential car parking rates are consistent with those across the Macquarie Park Corridor.

A copy of the updated DCP is available to view below.
