The Lane Cove Traffic Committee advises Lane Cove Council on traffic and parking control matters for which Council has been delegated authority from Transport for NSW (TfNSW). The Committee makes recommendations, and those recommendations are then tabled at a Lane Cove Council meeting for Council to either endorse, reject or ask for more information.
The Traffic Committee comprises the following permanent members:
- One representative of Lane Cove Council
- One representative of the NSW Police
- One representative of TfNSW
- One person representing the state Member of Parliament
The Traffic Committee can have other members such as rangers, traffic engineers, road safety officers and other council staff.
At February’s Lane Cove Council Meeting, it was resolved that a councillor should be a committee member. Councillor Kathy Bryla was appointed to the Traffic Committee.
Lane Cove Council also voted to allow residents to speak at the Traffic Committee on agenda items.
