Did you know the City of Ryde has a Development Application tracker?
You can track any DA in the City in a few clicks.
You might not also be aware but elected Councillors no longer determine local development applications.
In March 2018, the State Government removed that power from your local elected representatives, reducing accountability for developers across NSW. Councils across NSW objected to these changes, but the State Government did not agree with out requests for locals to determine local development applications.
The power to determine local development applications with over ten (10) submissions rests with the Ryde Planning Panel (RPP).
The RPP consists of three (3) State Government appointees and a local community representative. If you make a submission in response to a DA, Council Staff will notify you if the matter goes to the RPP.
You can learn more about the planning panel and its past decisions by clicking here: Learn about the RPP
You can also make a submission and address the planning panel here: Make a submission to the RPP
Sick of major over-development? Heard of Eden Gardens?
Hang on, I thought this would be determined by the Ryde Planning Panel? What is the Sydney North Planning Panel?
