Lane Cove Week in Review – 30th May to 5th June 2016

This week was a big news week (and we are not even talking about the weekend weather).

Lane Cove Council Confirms that ALDI and Coles will be Anchor Tenants in Rosenthal Av Development

This week the Lane Cove Council  announced that Coles and ALDI are officially the Anchor Tenants for Rosenthal Avenue Car Park Redevelopment. They will occupy 5,400m2 of new retail space.

“I am thrilled that Lane Cove has secured Coles and ALDI, they will be a wonderful addition to this new project in the heart of Lane Cove village. Our community has been looking forward to the Rosenthal redevelopment for several years and with work to commence next year, we finally have this major project in our sights” Mayor Hutchens.

Shoppers will have access to 500 underground car park spaces which will be constructed through the project. The new spaces will be a 250% increase on the 175 spaces of the current car park.

The jewel in the crown will be a vibrant public domain. Sitting at ground level the new park and open space will have something for the whole community. From park areas to playgrounds, BBQs, village green and stage, the space will be a place that attracts locals all year round. The redevelopment will start in 2017.

The exit will have two lanes and will use the same wireless ticketing system as the Lane Cove Market Square Carpark (which does seem to work much better at the Little Street Carpark).

This is an artist’s impression of the new area.


SES Releases Tsunami Evacuation Maps – Lane Cove Areas are Included

On Friday, the NSW SES released Tsunami Evacuation Maps – this is only a precaution in the unlikely event of a land based Tsunami.   Some areas of Lane Cove are in the red zone – see if your area is included (don’t be alarmed this is not a warning just information to be prepared)

Lane Cove Real Estate

Well Done to Stewart Kirkby and the LJ Hooker Lane Cove team for the amazing price they achieved for a house in Riverview which was on the market for the first time since 1920’s.   You can find out more here.

This amazing price was achieved in the same week that property experts noted that Lane Cove will have a housing oversupply due to the number of Apartment Complexes being approved by the Lane Cove Council.  You can read the article here

Hughes Park

Congratulations to the Lane Cove Council for listening to the people and installing shade cloths in the new and very popular Hughes Park – if you have not been to Hughes Park – you should. There is something there for everyone including a see saw that teenagers love.

Crime Report

Thursday night saw a crime spree in Lane Cove and Longueville.  The police have not released the number of cars broken into but it was quite a few. The thieves targetted cars (particularly ones that were unlocked).  They stole money, sunglasses and electronic devices.  It appears that they skipped the houses that had sensor lights.  Speak to your electrician about installing some.  You can find local electricians here.

Bus Route Changes

The following changes will take place from 5 June:

Routes 253, 285, 288, 292, 293, 294 and 297 – timetable adjustments will affect these routes.
