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.

    My kids and I love the trees on this corner. The monster apartments on the other side of Herring Road are an eyesore. If Ivanhoe is developed in this way, the entire character of leafy Macquarie Park is destroyed at the gateway to the business precinct, uni, shops. ENOUGH! PLEASE REDO THE PLANS IN A GREENER, LOWER DENSITY WAY.

    Ryde area has been overdeveloped

    No more high density or development

    It is not enhancing our suburbs and will eventually decrease our home values and affects our lifestyle and our Aussie dream everyone has lost our backyards and way of living

    Roads are too congested now and Ryde residents have no say anymore

    The last page of the sales brochure says it all. Have a look at that page. It’s called Attachment 2. We are the David taking on Goliath and even though it’s a huge fight ahead we have a Mayor and council we can rely on to back us up. Thanks again Jerome !

    This government is short on thinking and fast on signing our funds away. They compulsorily acquire properties in farming and park corridors to put roads. Yes, Gladys…we’re getting the impression that you were the ex-Transport Minister because that’s all you care about. What about our schools and the falling education standards, what about the health system, what our the growing number of beggars on the streets….isn’t that why you have the taxpayers’ monies? It’s about looking after the less fortunate – not the SCG Trust. You can’t fool us. You stand there on TV, trying to placate us by saying you’ve cut back on 0,5billion dollars worth of spending on the two stadiums. Well, we say NO! to your stadium spending and if anyone reading this has a good long think, that money should be spent reducing the number of toll roads that we have in Sydney. I’m sorry. I consider you to be the WORST, yes, the WORST Premier NSW has ever had. It’s about time you started actually caring for the citizens of NSW instead of making us live on top of each other via overdevelopment and expanding road corridors, re-building two stadiums which benefit very few people and wasting our money on all these light rail projects. Our money should be spent in our schools, on the less fortunate, in hospitals such as Mental Health facilities and providing more green space….not cutting our trees down. I say people power has to take over , ‘VOTE GLADYS BEREJEKLIAN OUT OF POWER NOW!!!!!!’

    Disliking high developments and being overcrowded – like lots of greenery, less cars around a and less people in the streets – how it was before.
