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.

    Eno gh is enough, the beautiful bush in the rehab centre development has been totally destroyed thanks to the NSW government! Ryde has a council voted in by the people of Ryde to determine what happens in Ryde, it’s not up to NSW Planning to make development decisions for Ryde, it’s up to the people of Ryde via their elected council!

    Leave the trees! They probably have been here longer than we have.

    There has already been too much loss of trees and new developments with little or no open space for future residents to enjoy.

    Enough is enough. I favour progress but let’s get the infrastructure in place. Need more trains running longer hours and more frequent to get us to use public transport. Local schools are FULL and the streets are in shambles. Common sense PLEASE!

    Words fail me. It feels like we’re all trapped in a nightmare that we can’t wake up from. Will it ever end?

    Total overkill how are the emergency services going to help in this rabbit warren estate let alone the traffic impact the current health system will not be able to service the needs of the increase in population. The transport system WILL NOT work with the extra burden it is stretched to breaking now. A high school was promised two or three years ago but the only answer is a privately run school which is a Catholic operation not suitable for the majority of tenants who will be in this area

    Eastwood,Ryde, Denistone, Macquarie Park and Epping are over crowded. Infrastructure is very much inadequate to cope with this type of development. You must visit first avenue in Eastwood in the morning and late afternoon to experience the difficulty.

    How can this over development be allowed to happen? Insufficient infrastructure and environmental damage is the result. We don’t need it.

    We can’t afford to loss anymore canopy the destruction of our green spaces will continue to make Sydney a less liveable city! Please stop this over development now!
