First development application approved


The Ryde Hospital Redevelopment is being assessed and approved by the Department of Planning and Environment (DPE) under a two-staged planning process.

The Ryde Hospital Redevelopment team is pleased to advise that the first State Significant Development Application (SSDA1) has been approved by the Department of Planning and Environment.

The SSDA process is the formal planning approval pathway for major infrastructure developments valued at $30 million and above, such as the Ryde Hospital Redevelopment.

The SSDA 1 (concept and early works) was approved for:

  • size and scale of the redevelopment

  • the early construction works:

    • demolition of buildings within the footprint of the redevelopment

    • site preparation works

    • relocation and upgrades of in-ground services (e.g. electrical and gas connections).

The second State Significant Development Application is expected to be lodged with DPE in late 2023.
