Help with waste collection and verge mowing

Nature strip mowing service

Lane Cove Council relies on residents and businesses to maintain the grassed nature strips adjoining their property. Council provides a Nature Strip Mowing Service for those residents who are unable to maintain the nature strip and meet eligibility requirements.

You will initially need to complete the Nature Strip Mowing Service application form to enable Council to determine your eligibility for placement on the Nature Strip Mowing List.

The form can be accessed via the following link: Nature Strip Mowing Service Application or contact Council's Open Space & Urban Services Division on 9911 3583 for more information.


Waste Collection support service

Some older residents may be physically unable to take their garbage bin to the kerbside and do not have neighbours or family willing to assist. Council currently provides additional assistance to members of the community who require help in wheeling their waste bins out for collection. Eligibility for this service however is assessed on a case by case basis, subject to certain criteria and a risk assessment. Contact Council's Waste Avoidance Officer on 9911 3657 for more information.


Community Connection Hot Desk in the Library

To receive a Seniors Parking Permit complete a Seniors Parking Permit Application Form and bring your Drivers Licence and Rate Notice or Tenancy Agreement to Council for sighting by our Customer Service Staff OR send your completed Seniors Parking Permit Application form together with a photocopy of your Drivers Licence and a photocopy of a recent Rate Notice or Tenancy Agreement to Council.

Housing Information for Seniors

During the Strategy for an Age-Friendly Lane Cove consultations Council was asked to provide information about granny flats/dual occupancies.

A Granny flat is a secondary dwelling which is a self-contained dwelling, is established in conjunction with another dwelling (the principal dwelling), is on the same lot of land (not being an individual lot in a strata plan or community title scheme) as the principal dwelling, and is located within, or is attached to, or is separate from, the principal dwelling.

A Council or an accredited Private Certifier can approve granny flats as a Complying Development (CDC) without the need for a Development Application, provided it meets the specific development standards in the State Environmental Planning Policy (Affordable Rental Housing) 2009 – see Division 2 Secondary Dwellings
