Lane Cove Pool and Grandstand

​Council has unfortunately had to bring forward the closure date of the 50m outdoor pool at Lane Cove Aquatic Centre.

While Council had been preparing for the closure of the pool in 2019, pool experts and engineers have observed such a rapid decline in recent weeks that they have deemed the pool is not safe for public use.

Council has commenced a process for the public to provide input into what they would like to see with a new pool and/or grandstand.

Feedback could be in relation to operational improvements, new features or other related topics.

If you would like to provide your feedback, please complete the online survey.

Updates on the timing of the pool and grandstand works will be available at www.lanecove.nsw.gov.au/poolandgrandstand

If you have a photograph, anecdote or special memory you would like to share with Council please email service@lanecove.nsw.gov.au with Pool Memories in the header. This information will help form part of a future celebration piece to mark the end of an era for the current 50m outdoor pool.

Background

The NSW Government has recently adopted State Environmental Planning Policy (Exempt and Complying Development Codes) Amendment (Low Rise Medium Density Housing) 2017, the Medium Density Housing Code and associated Design Guide.

The new Medium Density Housing Code and Design Guide will supersede Council's planning controls by permitting terraces/townhouses in the R2 zone and allowing multi-dwelling housing to a height of 8.5 metres, overriding Council's height control of 5 metres. This would not have been consistent with Council's long standing planning approach to only permit low-scale single storey villas in the R2 Low Density Residential Zone.

Proposal

In accordance with the Environmental Planning and Assessment Act 1979 & Regulation 2000 and the Local Government Act 1993, Council is consulting with the community on a planning proposal to permanently prohibit the land use 'multi-dwelling housing' in the R2 Low Density Residential Zone.  Ministerial delegation has not been issued to Council for this proposal.

Council submitted a Planning Proposal to remove the land use 'multi-dwelling housing' from the R2 Low Density Residential zone and any planning controls that support it. This is not only justified by Council's long-standing policy of prohibiting 2-storey multi-dwelling housing in the low density zone, but critical to maintaining local character and built form. Two-storey multi-dwelling housing would, however, still be permitted in the R3 Medium Density Residential Zone.

The overall intent is to prohibit 'multi-dwelling housing' in the R2 Low Density Residential Zone so that this form of development cannot occur in this zone.  Therefore, the existing height and floor space ratio controls that relate to 'multi-dwelling housing' in the R2 Low Density Residential Zone are no longer needed and are being deleted altogether (points 2 and 3 below). This removal of the controls is part of the legal process to prohibit 'multi-dwelling housing' in the R2 Low Density Residential Zone.  All other planning controls will remain.

Purpose of Planning Proposal 33

The proposed LEP amendments seek to:-

  1. Permanently prohibit the land use 'multi-dwelling housing' in the R2 Low Density Residential Zone;
  2. Remove the height control for multi-dwelling housing in the R2 Low Density Residential zone; and
  3. Remove the floor space ratio control for multi-dwelling housing in the R2 Low Density Residential zone.

Background

Council pest management programs in outdoor public places, such as parks and ovals aim to apply best practice, humane and cost effective methods that will have minimal impacts on the environment.

Under the Pesticides Regulation 2017 Council is required to prepare a Pesticide Notification Plan and publically exhibit this plan for a minimum of four (4) weeks allowing for community comment. 

Council has developed a Draft Pesticide Notification Plan 2018 which aims to inform members of the community of the use of pesticides in outdoor public places in their local area, prior to the implementation of necessary pest management programs and allow members of the community to take action to avoid contact with pesticides, if they wish.

Council's draft Pesticide Notification Plan is available online.

To have your say on the Draft Plan, please make a submission to the General Manager, quoting the reference 'SU7246' by:

•  Post: PO Box 20, Lane Cove NSW 1595; or
