The City of Ryde is a local government area that services certain suburbs located within the Lower North Shore and Northern Suburbs of Sydney, in the state of New South Wales, Australia. It was first established as the "Municipal District of Ryde" in 1870, became a municipality in 1906 and was proclaimed as the City of Ryde in 1992.

The local government area extends from the Parramatta River to the Lane Cove River which encircles the area in the north, and is bounded in the east by the peninsula of Hunters Hill and the City of Parramatta in the west.

The Mayor of the City of Ryde since September 2016 is Cr. Bill Pickering, a member of the Liberal Party.

Council history[edit]

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".[3] This resulted in the municipality being formally proclaimed on 11 November 1870.[4] With a total land area of 40.6 square kilometres, Ryde was the largest Sydney municipality.[5] However, due to an error in the proclamation regarding the western boundary, a new proclamation was made on 11 June 1872.[6]

In June 1894 the northern section of the municipality known as Marsfield, was proclaimed as the "Municipal District of Marsfield".[7] 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 in 1992, marking the bicentenary of the first land grants in Ryde, and with the passing of the Local Government Act 1993, aldermen were also retitled councillors.[8]

2016–17 amalgamation proposal[edit]

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.[9] The outcome of an independent review and legal action is expected by mid-2017.[needs update]
