Have Your Say on Proposed Alcohol Prohibited Areas and Alcohol Free Zones:

Parks and Commercial Areas and New Years Eve

Consultation is now open and will run from Friday 25 September 2020 to Friday 6 November 2020.  

  • Parks and Reserves - Proposed AFZ/APAs - 8pm - 8am

  • Lane Cove CBD and St Leonards CBD - 24 Hours

Following a number of alcohol related incidents in local parks and reserves, Council proposes to declare all  parks, reserves and adjacent streets within the Lane Cove LGA as Alcohol Prohibited Areas (APA) and Alcohol-Free Zones (AFZ).

In order to ensure that the amenity of the locality is maintained, it is proposed that the restrictions be implemented for all parks & reserves between 8:00pm and 8:00am, and within the St Leonard's and Lane Cove commercial areas (24 hours per day) from 31 December to the 1 January, commencing in 2020.

Council is currently undertaking consultation to determine the community's views on this proposal which is made in accordance with the provisions of Section 632A and Section 644 of the Local Government Act, 1993.

A full list of the of the parks, reserves and streets impacted by the proposal is available in the background documents.

New Years Eve

Following community consultation in 2015, Council resolved to establish APA’s in all parks and reserves and AFZ’s in the streets surrounding these reserves that are in proximity of Sydney Harbour/Lane Cove River for 4 years (maximum period allowed).

As these zones expired on the 1 January 2020, it is recommended that public consultation be undertaken with a view to renewing these APA’s and AFZ’s for a further 4 years from 31 December 2020 to 1 January 2025.

Council's Open Space Plan identifies the need to increase the capacity and use of open space assets through investment, innovation and good design. To help improve the use of Bob Campbell Oval, Greenwich, Council has prepared a Draft Masterplan which demonstrates how a range of features could be included on the site.

Council's 2008 Recreation Action Plan was developed to identify existing gaps in sports infrastructure and planned for increased capacity as a result of increased participation in sport. It recommended that Council investigate the option of a synthetic field at Blackman Park or Bob Campbell Oval, along with upgraded cricket wickets and improved lighting. The Blackman Park upgrades were ultimately completed in 2014.

The 2014 NSROC Regional Sportsground Strategy which covered the LGAs of Hornsby, Hunter's Hill, Ku-ring-gai, Lane Cove, North Sydney, Ryde and Willoughby, identified that demand for sportsfields would far outweigh supply in coming years even with all existing fields converting to synthetic to allow higher usage. This report identified Bob Campbell Oval as a potential synthetic field location.

Council's 2018-2021 Delivery Program and Operation Plan included an action to develop a synthetic playing surface at Bob Campbell Oval including consideration of the provision of walkways, off-leash areas and amenities/car parks. Council has been successful in securing funds for the upgrade to the oval and surrounding park area through state funding from NSW Department of Planning, Infrastructure and Environment.

The community is now being asked to provide feedback on the Masterplan which includes the following:

  • New synthetic field to accommodate Soccer (90m x 50m) and Cricket
  • Existing Bushland
  • New fitness track approx. 400m in length
  • Enclosed off-leash dog areas
  • New amenities building
  • Approx. 50 space car park
  • Link to existing bush track
  • New native vegetation area
  • Existing aquaduct
  • New playground and fitness equipment
  • New BBQ picnic area
  • Existing vehicular access road and shared user access path
  • New shared user path (SUP)
  • New upgraded lighting for field
  • New Netball training court for off-peak times
  • Perimeter fence


Council has prepared Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ's), along with a number of background documents and will host two community drop-in information sessions.
