Lane Cove News Week in Review 8th to 15th June 2022

Welcome to our Lane Cove News week in review. We finally have some sunny weather, and the mornings are crisp but stunning (see our cover photo).

Antonio The Flower Man – Update

Lane Cove Council held an Extraordinary Traffic Committee meeting on Friday, 10 June 2022, to discuss removing the No Stopping signs on Burns Bay Road to enable Antonio The Flower Man to continue trading. Background to the issue here.

Anthony Roberts attended the meeting with representatives from Transport for NSW and the highway patrol.

It was agreed that Transport would look at replacing the No Stopping Signs with 15 Minutes Parking – police cars excepted. The Lane Cove Council will issue Antonio a permit to sell flowers Friday afternoon, Saturday, Sunday and on Public Holidays.

Lane Cove in the News

The Sydney Morning Herald published an article about conwoman Melissa Craddock and her scheme to defraud Len Wallis Audio. According to the SMH, Melissa Craddick claimed the audio equipment installed by Len Wallis was not working, and she had to cancel two bookings for her home over Christmas. She sent Len Wallis an invoice for the loss of rent. Read more here (it is paywalled).

Lifts and Escalators in Lane Cove

Lane Cove seems to have an issue with lifts and escalators. The down escalator at The Canopy has been out of action for over a week.

The Lift at the Lane Cove Bus Interchange is always out of action. Transport for NSW has advised it will be fixed as they will soon be receiving the necessary parts from Overseas.

Roads and Traffic Forum

Do you have an issue with traffic or a state road in Lane Cove?

Anthony Roberts will be hosting a community consultation session for residents in conjunction with In The Cove on traffic and road issues.

Anthony Roberts and In the Cove have been working on this session since his office got in touch a couple of months ago, and we would love as much community participation as possible.

We have started a poll below to gauge people’s availability on different dates and times.
If you are interested in coming along, please email us a preferred date and time from the list below.

We will also be asking you to nominate the issue you would like discussed shortly.

Update on Fushia Boutique

Fushia Boutique issued the following statement:

“Dear valued customers,

We have been absolutely amazed by the support we have seen from all of you since our announcement to close the shop.

To give you an update and avoid any misconception, we are still open at this stage as we still have commitments to our suppliers, which we do not want to let down.

We will keep you updated on any changes accordingly and we are still holding and selling new stock as deliveries continue to come in, so we would love to see you in-store with the winter season now here.

On Saturday, UTS Judo’s Viola took a bronze medal at the Australian National Championship held at the Gold Coast.

This is a huge success as this is the highest tournament in Australia.
