Lane Cove Week in Review – 23 to 29 Oct 2017

Welcome to our Lane Cove Week in Review for 23 to 29 October 2017

Feisty Lane Cove Council Meeting

The new Lane Cove Councillors had a baptism of fire at their first council meeting. The Public Comment part of the meeting went for over 1 1/2hours. Residents were very passionate about the St Leonards South Master Plan. The master plan will see another 2400 units built in St Leonards. This will impact other Lane Cove/Greenwich residents with increased traffic on the Pacific Highway and River Road West. It will also put a strain on local schools, public transport, and other infrastructure. The Lane Cove Council will be putting the master plan out for comment on 31 October 2017 and all residents are encouraged to have a say.
