Welcome to our Lane Cove Week in Review for 10 to 16 July 2017.

New Business ITC

A new shop opened at Yorks Corner shops in Riverview this week – Anya Thai Massage. A Roving Reporter told us that she popped her head in to check it out and it looked very nice inside, and the massage prices seemed very reasonable.

Rental Vacancies on the Rise in Lane Cove

According to the AFR, rental vacancies in inner Sydney rose in the last month to their highest level in almost two years as new apartment stock coming into the market gave tenants more choice,  Real Estate Institute of NSW figures showed an  increase to 2.2 per cent from 1.9 per cent in May across a band of suburbs between Lane Cove, Randwick and Ashfield. This was the highest level since August 2015, according to the latest REINSW Vacancy Rate Survey.

The War on Waste Cranks up a Notch

We could imagine the Lane Cove Sustainability Action Group jumping for joy this week, when Woolworths and Coles made the huge announcement that they were (finally!) banning single-use plastic bags from their stores. You can read more about the good news HERE.
