Disability Inclusion Action Plan

Consultation to develop a Disability Inclusion Action Plan

This Consultation will run from 23 March – 5 May 2017


Community Development Officer – Aged and Disability Services
Ph: (02) 9911 3593


Council is seeking input from the community on its first Disability Inclusion Action Plan (DIAP) which will identify actions to assist people with disability to participate more fully in community life. The plan will address four key areas that have been nominated by people with disability as being of primary importance in creating an inclusive community:

  • Developing positive community attitudes and behaviours
  • Creating liveable communities
  • Supporting access to meaningful employment
  • Improving access to services through better systems and processes

The DIAP will provide a whole of Council approach to effectively plan for and deliver on the diverse needs of people with disability in our community. Council invites people living with disability, their carers, family members, friends and the general community to provide input into this plan by

  • Participating in a community survey where all members of the community will be able to have their say about disability inclusion.
  • Attending a focus group for people with disability, their carers and their families
  • Having a one on one conversation with consultants if you are not comfortable in a group situation or need extra support
  • Arranging or requesting a Meeting in a Box Toolkit.  This is a mini consultation that can be used by groups, families or friend to run a consultation meeting of their own using standardised procedures and questions

Council has engaged Elton Consulting to assist with the consultations and in the development of the plan.

Have Your Say on the Fleming Street, Northwood Private Road Naming

Consultation will run from 16 March to 26 April 2017.


Strategic Planner
Ph: (02) 9911 3580


At its Meeting of 20 February 2017, Council resolved to name the unnamed private roadway at the eastern side of 18 Fleming Street, as Pendray Close. This change was the result of the Geographical Names Board rejecting the name Nichols Close.



Council is currently consulting with the community on the Fleming Street, Northwood Private Road Naming.  Geographical Names Board have now given pre-approval for the name Pendray Close. The name Pendray is after William Pendray who had a 20-acre orchard at Pendray Point, the original name for Northwood. Any comments received will be reviewed and evaluated to determine whether or not to proceed with the chosen name.

Have your say

To have your say on this proposal please make a submission to the General Manager quoting the reference 'Fleming Street, Northwood Private Road Naming – SU4577' by:-

  • Post: Lane Cove Council PO Box 20, Lane Cove 1595;
  • Fax: 9911 3600; or
  • Email

Written submissions will be received by Council until Wednesday 26 April 2017.

Traffic Changes for Lane Cove Village

​Traffic Changes for Lane Cove Village

This Consultation will run from 2 March – 12 April 2017


Traffic Engineer
Ph: (02) 9911 3581

Council is considering road upgrades and parking changes within the Village area to cater for the additional traffic generated by Lane Cove's increasing population and the upcoming Rosenthal Avenue Car Park redevelopment.

The upgrades under consideration include:

1. The installation of traffic lights at the intersection of Burns Bay Road, Coxs Lane and Tambourine Bay Road which will result in the need to change access to/from Sutherland Street and impact on traffic through nearby Graham Street.

2. Making changes to Finlayson Street and Coxs Lane to improve traffic flow. This would include changes to the width of the road and/or parking arrangements to improve safety and ease congestion as more cars seek to connect to Epping Road.

3. A longer term project is to help provide better access to Epping Road via revisions to the traffic signals at the intersection with Coxs Lane. Although this is not an immediate task, Council is using the opportunity to consult with the community at this early stage to assist during the planning process.

To assist the community with understanding the options being proposed it is recommended that you view the Proposed Plans for Traffic Changes for Lane Cove Village 2017. Following Council's Information Session on 15 March a series of FAQs have been addressed:

Please note: the survey and proposed plans include an update to the dimensions for Option 5 – Changes to Coxs Lane (between Finlayson Street and Sutherland Street) made on 14 March 2017. This follows advice on 14 March 2017 that the design consultant had incorrectly calculated the amount of green space impacted by road widening options for 5b and 5c (view the notification to Council).This issue has now been addressed in all documentation and previous survey respondents have been contacted to provide them with the opportunity to update their response.

Surveys completed from 3:30pm Tuesday 14 March contain the updated information.

Have Your Say

The community are encouraged to complete the online survey.

The survey takes approximately 5 minutes to complete and there is the option to include your comments. It is recommended you read the proposed plans prior to completing the survey.

Written submissions can also be made to the General Manager quoting 'Traffic Changes for Lane Cove Village – SU6637' by:-
