    Greenwich Hospital Redevelopment Plans

    Greenwich and Northwood Residents are concerned about the plans for Independent Living Units to be built on the Greenwich Hospital Grounds. They are concerned about the extra traffic created by the redevelopment.  Constructing Independent Living Units will mean less land available to expand the hospital in the future.

    Trent Zimmerman Launches Save the Lane Cove Pool Petition

    ITC does not normally share videos from politicians. However after finding out why Trent Zimmerman recorded the video below-  we are sharing. Trent is seeking funding for the Lane Cove Pool refurbishment.  He is seeking more funding that he can usually obtain through the grant process.

    Lane Cove’s pool is one of the busiest on the north shore with over 700,000 visitors a year. It’s also home to the Lane Cove Swim Club.

    Trent wants Lane Cove’s support to show Canberra that the Lane Cove Pool is a valuable community asset that must be redeveloped asap. If you agree please sign the petition here
