Dog Advisory Committee

At the Lane Cove Council October 2021 meeting, the Council resolved to establish a Community Dog Advisory Committee.

On Tuesday, 29 March 2022, Council hosted a Community Workshop to give members of the community an opportunity to determine how the Advisory Committee will operate, which would then inform the role, functions and objectives of the Committee for the development of the Charter.

At the Lane Cove Council May 2022 meeting, Council adopted a Charter and resolved to call for expressions of interest for community representatives on the Community Dog Advisory Committee.

The objective of the Community Dog Advisory Committee is to act as a central point of communication between Council and community stakeholder representatives, as users of open space for dogs in the Lane Cove LGA, and to provide advice on the provision of:

  • Reviewing and suggesting any changes to the Dog Strategy 2021 and any future reviews of the Dog Strategy;
  • Assisting Council with the implementation and planning of any recommendations arising in the Dog Strategy;
  • Assisting the Council with the implementation and planning of any dog-related events proposed by the Dog Strategy, noting that “dog-related events” can include, but are not limited to, any activity in which the community can be involved, which allows dogs to be a part of it. Examples of this may include community dog training; dog shows; dog events like Paws in the Park or Street Paws festivals;
  • Proactively engaging with stakeholders to attend Committee meetings for expert advice; and
  • Strive to achieve best practice for the Lane Cove community.

The membership of the Community Dog Advisory Committee consists of:-

Five (5) community representatives, being:-

  • Three (3) dog owners from within the Lane Cove LGA local government area, including one from each Council ward;
  • One (1) local dog owner from the local dog services industry (i.e. dog walking, dog training); and
  • iii. One (1) local dog owner from the veterinary profession.
  • One (1) representative from a sporting club from the LCC area which is a dog owner;
  • One (1) member from the Bushland Management Advisory Committee (appointed by the Bushland Management Advisory Committee);
  • One (1) member from the Sporting Club Advisory Committee (appointed by the Sporting Club Advisory Committee); and
  • One (1) non-dog owner

Lane Cove Crime, Incidents and Accidents

The following incident was reported on ITC Lane Cove Chat:

“Hi Everyone – we are looking for anyone who lives in an apartment building along Gordon Crescent who may have experienced theft/break in on the 2/6/22.

The below individual was seen forcing entry to our apartment building. We have a ton of footage and images – some of which I cannot share on social media.

From 4:20am to approx 5:30am this person took his time to search cars, car park and storage cages before making off with a number of expensive bikes.

His get away transport is suspected to have been parked outside 76-82 Gordon Cres during this time.

If you/your building were also affected please reach out to me privately.

To the thief – if you are reading this – you were quite impressive in the way you worked but you did make 5 seperate mistakes. You removed your gloves at one point and forgot to put them back, you left something behind, your phone registered with our cell-fi booster in the car park and two more mistakes that I won’t share here.”
