Lane Cove Business Round Up – Spring 2021

Welcome to our Lane Cove Business Round-Up.  During the COV1D19 lockdown, it was hard to know which businesses were temporarily closed and which businesses were closed forever so our popular monthly round-up was put on hold, but now we are back.

More Shops for Lane Cove North?

At the  Lane Cove Council October Monthly meeting on Monday 18 October 2021,

Councillor Andrew Zbik has tabled a notice of motion recommending Lane Cove Council write to landowners within the Lane Cove North area, who own land zoned R4 and who have not yet lodged a Development Application, asking if they have any interest in developing a neighbourhood centre concept.

The aim of Councillor Zbik’s motion is to address the lack of local shopping and place amenities in Lane Cove North. The residents of Lane Cove North do not have a neighbourhood centre that is an inviting place to meet and gather, shop or dine.
The notice of motion was defeated with Mayor Pam Palmer, Councillor Brent, Councillor Brooks Horn and Councillor Strassberg voting against the proposal.  Pam Palmer said it was not up to councillors to suggest a proposal of the nature suggested by Councillor Zbik.  Read more here.
