REZONING SPOTLIGHT

Rezoning land for infill development in North Ryde

North Ryde UAPIn September 2013, the NSW Government rezoned 12.5 hectares of land around North Ryde Station to provide up to 3,000 homes and 1,500 hobs alongside $17 million of infrastructure improvements.

During 2013, North Ryde was one of eight Urban Activation Precincts (UAPs) where the NSW Government investigated the potential to provide additional housing and employment near transport and infrastructure. Work is being finalised on two of these precincts at Epping Town Centre and Wentworth Point, which are expected to be rezoned early in 2014, providing around 6,000 more homes.
