About Rydalmere(Back to top)
The 104ha Rydalmere industrial precinct is located three kilometres from the Parramatta CBD and adjoins the University of Western Sydney (UWS) Parramatta Campus.
The precinct fronts the Parramatta River and Victoria Road and extends to Rydalmere Ferry Wharf in the east. It is characterised by industrial and business uses ranging considerably in size, industry sector and operation.
Council has a vision to transform Rydalmere into a high-tech and knowledge precinct so that businesses in this sector may benefit from being close, and having ties to the neighbouring university.
Employment Lands Strategy
Council’s Employment Lands Strategy (ELS) identifies Rydalmere as a Key Employment Precinct which is undergoing change, restructuring of key industries, and is of a significant scale and size to support urban renewal and increased employment densities.
The ELS recommends that a Structure Plan be prepared for Rydalmere. The announcement of Stage 2 Light Rail in late 2017 has implications for Rydalmere, especially given alignment options. This will need to be factored in as part of any future Structure Planning process.
