Welcome to our Lane Cove Weekly Review for 14 to 20 November 2016.
Deborah Hutchens (Mayor of Lane Cove) and Councillor Soo-Tee Cheong were featured in the North Shore Times this week. They were pictured in the empty Little Street Car Park. The Lane Cove Council is trying to educate Lane Cove shoppers that this car park is open and ready for use. Check out ITC’s blog on car parking in Lane Cove – where we visit each car park to ascertain which car park is the easiest and quickest to park in.
Events in Lane Cove
On Friday afternoon, an event called Kaleidoscope celebrated cultural diversity in Lane Cove. The sand art (featured above) was a stunning feature of the evening. Sadly, after it was completed it was quickly demolished by the local kids (after they got the go ahead from the artists).
Lane Cove Real Estate
The Lane Cove property market continues to be very hot (and bloody expensive).
A three bedroom apartment at 13/20a Austin St, Lane Cove went for $978,000 under the hammer this weekend – considerably above its $900,000-$950,000 price guide. Belle Properties Lane Cove Agent, Jess Goodman, said while the result had “pleasantly surprised” the vendors it was a reflection of the market. You can read more about the Lane Cove hot market here.
New Business Alert
ITC was told by Noodle King (on Longueville Road) that they will be closing down in about 2 weeks time.

Can You Solve This Mystery?

It is a low tone… Does anyone who lives in Huxtable Ave, Stokes Street, Helen Street and Murray Street to see if anyone else knows the source of the noise?

Crime and Accident Report
This week ITC saw a increase in police patrols in Lane Cove. In fact there were police patrols every day. One Roving Reporter told us they saw a man being arrested near BWS. The man was carrying a satchel bag which was comprehensively searched by the police before he was escorted away to “help the police with their enquiries”.
There was also a case of senseless petty crime outside the units located on Burns Bay Road. Six For Sale signs, near Hughes Park, were vandalised. If you saw anyone lurking around these signs or have any information please contact North Shore LAC – NSW Police Force
Lasertech (located on Longueville road just down from the Longy) has fifty $10 gift vouchers to giveaway. So if you are in the market for laser hair removal pop into Lasertech at 2/98 Longueville Road Lane Cove (an excellent Kris Kringle Gift)
