Despite promising an end to over-development "madness" the State Government have thundered ahead with their plans to build a 3500 unit monster development at the Ivanhoe Estate.
In a 76 page submission, Ryde Council has raised serious concerns about the NSW Government’s plans to build 3500 new dwellings on the corner of Herring and Epping roads at Ivanhoe Estate, warning that the new priority precinct will result in the destruction of endangered Sydney Turpentine Ironbark Forest and more traffic congestion on local roads.
The 3500 units set to replace the old Ivanhoe estate represents a 1250% increase on the 259 dwellings to be demolished by the NSW Government.
Member for Ryde, the Hon. Victor Dominello, has trumpeted the redevelopment of Ivanhoe Estate as a way for the Ryde community “to reap the benefits of community growth”.
Tell Mr Dominello and the State Government that we have had enough. Sign my petition to help Save Ivanhoe, and abolish priority precincts in Macquarie Park, North Ryde and Epping.
Recently you said you wanted to stop the over-development "madness" in Ryde. How then is your Government thundering ahead with 3,500 unit monster development at the Ivanhoe estate in Ryde?
You've said Ryde has taken it's fair share; then why are you increasing density by 1250% on the site?
I oppose the removal of 858 trees and the destruction of the endangered ecological forest.
I object to the impact this monster will have on the Shrimptons Creek ecological corridor.
I am sick of sitting in traffic across our City, only to be made worse by this proposal which you support.
How can you say one thing in Ryde, and do another thing in Parliament? Stand with the Council and please abolish your priority precincts in North Ryde, Macquarie Park and Epping.
