Over the last four months Council has been working with our community to review our Community Strategic Plan and develop a new Draft Plan, Liveable Lane Cove: 2035. This plan will guide us towards 2035 and help maintain a long term focus in planning for the future of Lane Cove.

The engagement process to date has focused on interactive workshops with community members, Councillors and Council staff.

During these discussions we've heard many thoughts and ideas about the future of Lane Cove, about what's important to you and about what our priorities should be over the next ten years.

You have told us about the issues most important to you and to the future of Lane Cove, such as:

  • Protecting our local open space and bushland
  • Improving public transport services
  • Managing urban growth and density with care
  • Preserving our clean waterways
  • Ensuring our community feels connected and involved in community life
  • Enhancing community safety on our streets and in our public spaces
  • Expanding choices for healthy and active lifestyles within our community
  • Creating opportunities for active community involvement in shaping the future of Lane Cove

Your feedback has enabled us to develop a Draft Plan in which we have refined, reassessed as well as strengthened areas of priority. Council has also developed a three-year Delivery Program and Operational Plan which outlines the specific actions required to achieve the long term objectives of the Liveable Lane Cove 2035 Community Strategic Plan and a budget that supports these actions. 



Council has now commenced its second stage of community consultation.  We want to know:

  • Is this the future that you imagine for Lane Cove?
  • Can we improve our plans?
  • Is there anything missing?

Over the coming years Council will be working hard to deliver a range of quality services and projects.  Some of the key projects identified in our plans include:

  • The delivery of the Rosenthal Redevelopment Project which includes new public parking, retail options and public open space
  • The construction of new open space and active recreation facilities in the Mowbray Precinct to cater for the additional population growth that is occurring in this area.
  • Grandstand upgrades at Tantallon Oval and Kingsford Smith Oval
  • A $150,000 investment in priority playground equipment upgrades
  • New customer service initiatives including the introduction of a new Customer Request Management System, Customer Concierge and Rapid Response Teams
  • Continued investment in Council's infrastructure maintenance and sustainability projects
  • A diverse events program including additional funding for celebrating 40 years of Lane Cove Plaza
