Welcome to Lane Cove!
Our Love Where You Live campaign celebrates the community spirit that leads to a safe, connected and vibrant community. Connecting with neighbours, enjoying outdoor events, celebrating local history, encouraging respect of public spaces and supporting our community all contributes to the 'village feel' that makes Lane Cove a great place to live, work and play.
Council will continue to promote activities and resources which celebrate Lane Cove and its people.

Neighbour Day:Say hello to your neighbour!
Have you been meaning to say hello to a new neighbour? Or say thank you to someone who lends a hand from time to time?
Council HAS developed a great way for you to start a conversation with your neighbour with special postcards and keyrings. Although National Neighbour Day has now passed we would like to provide you with the opportunity to still say thanks or hello to a neighbour.
All you need to do is contact Council on 9911 3591, visit the Civic Centre or send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org. We will then give you a Hello or Thank You postcard with room to write your message.
PLUS Included with every postcard is a free Love Where You Live Lane Cove keyring. This keyring celebrates the wonderful people that make up the neighbourhoods that we have grown to know and love in Lane Cove.
Guide to Street Parties
Council has also released a Guide to Street Parties to help locals looking to coordinate an event with their neighbours. In addition to clearly explaining the steps required to gaining permission to host an event in a local street, there are a number of resources available to approved events. This includes free recycling and waste collection, shade tents and invitation templates.
Download the guide to find out more or contact Council's Manager - Communications & Events on 9911 3616.

National Neighbour Day
The National Neighbour Day campaign is held on the last Sunday in March each year. In addition to promoting the 29 March campaign to the local community, Council intends to foster the sentiment of Neighbour Day all year round. This includes the provision of resources and events under the Love Where You Live campaign. As part of this commitment Council recently agreed to provide sponsorship to community events that foster relationships at a neighbourhood level - check back here soon for further details.
BREAKING NEWS! Lane Cove has become the first Council in Australia to receive the status of 'Very Neighbourly Organisation'. A Very Neighbourly Organisation must demonstrate the following five principles which represent the founding principles of Neighbour Day:-
- Strengthen communities and build better relationships with the people who live around us;
- Create safer, healthier and more vibrant suburbs and towns;
- Promote tolerance, respect and understanding;
- Break down community barriers; and
- Protect the elderly, the vulnerable and the disadvantaged.
For more information on Neighbour Day and other Very Neighbourly Organisations, visit the National Neighbour Day website.
As part of Sunset in the Village, Council has put together a map of public artworks throughout the Lane Cove area.
The interactive Streetside Gallery Map includes destinations and descriptions of the artworks to allow you to explore the local area in your own time. Visit the Streetside Gallery page to access the map.
