Fuchsia Boutique 
Fuchsia Boutique is located on Longueville Road (not far from Aussie Lane Cove) and has been in Lane Cove for 55 years in four different locations.
The owners issued the following statement to clients:
“It is with great sadness that we send this message out regarding the closure of our beloved shop.
Like many others, unfortunately, the impacts of Covid have been far too great on our business and we will need to close our doors after 55 years in the community.
On a positive note, it has been an absolute pleasure meeting and working with each and every one of you over the years. We will be holding a closing down sale.
We want to clear out all stock so feel free to come in and grab yourself some amazing items at discounted prices and share some final moments with us and our staff who have also seen us go through all the ups and downs of the last few years who without them, we would not have made it this far.
Thank you once again for supporting us throughout our years in service and we look forward to seeing you all soon.
The Fuchsia team
135 Longueville Road, Lane Cove.”

Local Eateries Update

Lane Cove has successfully obtained a $500 000 grant to transform public dining spaces as part of the next round of the NSW Government’s $20 million Streets as Shared Spaces program rolls out across the state.

Member for Lane Cove Anthony Roberts said the area had been provided $500 000 to brighten the community and bring residents together.

“This exciting project will beautify the area by providing more public space for the community to sit, relax and catch up with friends, admire new art installations, or even dine al fresco in their revitalised surrounds,” Mr Roberts said.

“If the pilot projects gain widespread community support, we’ll look to make them permanent so more people can enjoy the outdoors and connect with those around them.”

The funding will be used to create an adaptable space to accommodate outdoor dining and recreation space through a mountable footpath and the installation of movable bollards along Longueville Road.

In a recent poll, 70 per cent of people stated they were connecting with people in public spaces instead of at home.

The Streets as Shared Spaces program provides funding for councils to test and pilot new and innovative ideas that temporarily adapt streets as safe, shared public spaces to support healthier, secure and resilient communities.  More details here about the Street as Shared Spaces Program.

Having successfully secured funding, Lane Cove Council has offered Encasa, Shorties Bar and Dining, Patchai and Lillah the opportunity of an extended trial for streetside dining in May 2022.
