COMMUNITY engagement


Community input into the planning, design and delivery of the Ryde Hospital Redevelopment is essential in creating a welcoming facility that meets the health needs of the community well into the future.

The Ryde community was given the opportunity to provide key feedback in the early planning phase of the project, which helped inform the decision as to the most appropriate location for the hospital and what the community would like the planning team to consider in terms of the general look and feel of the new facility.

The feedback was captured during a series of drop-in sessions throughout June 2021, where the project team were able to interact with the community and answer questions about the project.

In January 2023, we unveiled the schematic designs, with the project team delivering a number online and in-person consultation session with community, staff and consumer to capture important feedback on the concept design and inform next steps.

Following feedback received by the community and key agencies, the State Significant Development Application (SSDA) was resubmitted to the Department of Planning and Environment. The updates made under the SSDA was made available inviting the public to provide their input.

Community feedback was also obtained via a survey, which prompted a strong response from community members, providing valuable insights to inform the planning and design process.

The project team will continue to provide the opportunity for the community to have its say as the project progresses. 

The team is happy to provide a project briefing to local stakeholders. Please email us to discuss –
