Council history[edit]

Ryde Civic Centre (1964) by Buckland & Druce architects, was the council seat from 1964 to 2016. It was demolished in 2021.

In June 1870, 201 residents of the district of Ryde sent a petition to the governor, requesting the incorporation of the "Municipal District of Ryde".[37] This resulted in the municipality being formally proclaimed on 11 November 1870.[38] With a total land area of 40.6 square kilometres, Ryde was the largest Sydney municipality.[39] However, due to an error in the proclamation regarding the western boundary, a new proclamation was made on 11 June 1872.[40]

In June 1894 the northern section of the municipality known as Marsfield, was proclaimed as the "Municipal District of Marsfield".[41] In 1907, Marsfield became known as the Municipality of Eastwood, and lasted until it was re-amalgamated with Ryde following the passing of the Local Government (Areas) Act 1948.

With the passing of the Local Government Act 1906, the council name was changed to be the "Municipality of Ryde". The City of Ryde was proclaimed by the Governor, Peter Sinclair, on 20 September 1991, and with the passing of the Local Government Act 1993, aldermen were also retitled councillors and the town clerk became the general manager.[42][43]

A 2015 review of local government boundaries by the NSW Government Independent Pricing and Regulatory Tribunal recommended that the City of Ryde merge with adjoining councils. The government proposed a merger of the Hunter's Hill, Lane Cove and Ryde Councils to form a new council with an area of 57 square kilometres (22 sq mi) and support a population of approximately 164,000.[44] In July 2017, the Berejiklian government decided to abandon the forced merger of the Hunter's Hill, Lane Cove and Ryde local government areas, along with several other proposed forced mergers.[45]

Symbolism
Escutcheon: The green field alludes to the rural nature of the early Ryde district, and the white chevron signifies Ryde's residential areas. The red dividers in the refers to town planning and the Ryde Housing Scheme, which was established in the late 1930s by the council to develop affordable housing in the area.[88][89][90][91] The apex of the chevron is a cross pattée representing Christianity, and references the establishment of St Anne's Church in Ryde in 1826. The two golden apples are symbolic of the orchard industry and the creation of the Granny Smith apple in Eastwood in 1868.[88] The rising sun recalls the district's original name, "Eastern Farms". The position of Ryde on the northern side of the Parramatta River and its position along the Lane Cove River is also referenced with the blue and white wavy bars. The cornucopia is a symbol of the early agricultural industry of the region and the transport of produce by the waterways.[88] Crest: The seahorse is taken from the 1869 coat of arms granted to the Borough of Ryde, on the Isle of Wight, and also references the waterways. The seahorse is charged with the Southern Cross for Australia. The Waratah in the seahorse's mouth is the State Floral Emblem of New South Wales and also appears in the mayoral chain. The golden cogwheel between the seahorse's legs denotes the flourishing of industry.[88] Supporters: The Private of Marines supporter alludes to the fact that two Royal Marines were the first local land grantees, when Governor Arthur Phillip granted the first parcels of land in the district in 1792, and which likely resulted in the naming of the Parish of Field of Mars. The positioning of the marine and the colonist is meant to represent the pioneers at the Field of Mars on the west; and at Hunter's Hill Parish, and Eastern Farms, or Kissing Point, on the east.[88]
