Lane Cove Week in Review – 28 August to 3 September 2017

Welcome to our Lane Cove Week in Review for 28 August to 3 September 2017.

Shooting in Lane Cove

A man suffering a gunshot wound to his shoulder was found on a footpath opposite Mowbray Public School last Sunday night.

Emergency services were called to Mowbray Road West in Lane Cove, near Willandra Street, at about 10.25pm, where they located the 37-year-old man. He was treated at the scene before being taken to Royal North Shore Hospital. His injuries were not life-threatening. A crime scene was established and detectives from North Shore Local Area Command are conducting further inquiries.


Meet the Candidates

This week, In the Cove, hosted a Meet the Candidates Function at the Lane Cove Community Hub.  Each candidate was given 4 minutes to speak and then a Q and A afterwards.  The main issues:

  • Confirmation was sought that if a major party had a voluntary amalgamation policy, the local councillors would not support this policy;
  • Confirmation that councillors would do everything in their power to halt further large developments in Lane Cove; and
  • Confirmation that councillors would not reduce green spaces (in particular the Lane Cove Golf Club).


If you would like to know more about each councillor you can read our article here.

Rosenthal Avenue Car Park Redevelopment

The official turning of the soil for the Rosenthal Avenue car park development took place on Saturday morning and construction will start in 2 weeks.  Remember you can park in Little Street Carpark.

Dedicated Parking for Lane Cove Businesses Behind Coles near Sera Street

We have had a few people ask us about the new line marking and signage at the bottom of the Coles Car Park near Sera Street. The Rosenthal Car Park redevelopment will start in two weeks. The Lane Cove Council advised that they had monitored these car parking spots and they were very rarely used. They are now being allocated on a ballot system for Lane Cove Retailers.
