Masterplans present ideas for the future of places by recognising opportunities and constraints for change. At its heart, the Meadowbank Education and Employment Precinct will have a new primary and secondary school and a $154 million transformation of the Meadowbank TAFE into a technology-focused campus.
The masterplan was a recommendation to the NSW Government from the Commission’s review of planning in the Ryde LGA earlier this year. It has brought together government agencies, including the Department of Premier and Cabinet (DPC), School Infrastructure and TAFE NSW, along with the City of Ryde Council, to coordinate consultation with local businesses and the community.
Stage one of the masterplan has analysed early pedestrian and access works to improve connections when the schools and TAFE facilities open in 2022. The next stage will address opportunities for recreation and employment in the wider area surrounding the education campus. This will include discussion with Sydney Water about using part of the Ryde water pumping station site for public access, open space and community facilities.
The final masterplan will be completed by May 2020, incorporating feedback from the community and further analysis of the ideas. For more information, contact us via firstname.lastname@example.org.
