Save Ivanhoe

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.


Mr Dominello,

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.


Concerned Resident.

    Probably a bit late to stop it, but it certainly could be modified to reduce habitat destruction

    I have lived in Sydney my whole life that’s 55 years . Over the past 3 years I have come to the conclusion this city I onced loved. Is being destroyed by greedy Property Developers , Big Corporations, Banks and their political mates. Unplanned rampant overdevelopment and a lack of a population policy with supportive infrastructure are ruining our big cities ,quality of life and environmental sustainability.

    These plans are a disaster for Macquarie Park. As usual no proper planning for open space, traffic congestion, etc. this is overdevelopment at its worst.
