Another fail for the Lane Cove Market Square Car park and the Lane Cove Council.  The roller door was not open for Sunday Trading.  The fault was logged by Woolworths and ITC with the Lane Cove Council “Emergency LIne”.  Callers were advised that Rangers (who are able to manually override the system) were not available on Sundays and that it would be referred to the Lane Cove Council for action on Mondays. ITC contacted the Lane Cove Council General Manager by Email and he responded as follows:

I have no idea why the after hours call centre would give that response and agree it is unacceptable. I have spoken to Vlad, our senior ranger who will follow it up with them. He has assured me that is not the correct response by the call centre.
