Emissions Reduction Pathway

Council sets ambitious energy emissions and water use targets


Council is pleased to announce that on Monday 16 March, Council passed a motion setting ambitious targets to reduce emissions and water use, both within Council operations, and across the LGA. Emissions and water reduction targets underpin the strategies which will guide Council on an emissions reduction pathway and focus on actions which increase climate change resilience.

The targets are:

• Achieve an 80% reduction in emissions by 2036 based on 2016/17 levels; and

• Achieve no net increase in water use by 2036 based on 16/17 levels.

Council's total emissions represent 2% of the LGA's emissions. A significant proportion of the remaining emissions are from electricity used by the residential and non-residential sector. Therefore, it is imperative that Council establishes closer partnerships with these stakeholders to ensure the targets are reached.

To achieve these targets Council has identified 8 key directions:

1. Targeted Renewable Energy

  • Examine industrial sites and large commercial buildings across the LGA to establish opportunities, and support solar PV installations, in a minimum of three locations in 2020/21;
  • Implement a pilot project engaging large apartments to undertake an energy and water assessment to identify energy saving opportunities, along with an action plan.

2. Identify high-performance new building standards that are relevant for Lane Cove

  • Prepare a paper on possible higher BASIX targets, including those already endorsed in other LGA's and report back on the outcomes and opportunities;
  • Lobby the NSW Government to encourage mandatory higher BASIX targets for residential and commercial new buildings;
  • Introduce a program for residents to engage sustainability consultants and implement sustainability outcomes at the pre-DA stage;

3. Continue to deliver efficient Council owned, and leased, assets

  • Install a minimum of 100kW solar PV at the Aquatic Centre across the Grandstand and the main building in 2020/21;
  • Council to continue to work with Ausgrid to complete the LED Streetlighting Program by December 2020;

4. Investigate establishing a Low Carbon Precinct in the LGA

  • Review DCP controls and investigate increasing the NABERS rating of mixed-use developments to six stars and apartment ratings to a minimum of 5 stars;
     

5. Water conservation strategies

  • Identify opportunities for recycled water use in Council owned and leased facilities;
  • Promote opportunities available to residents and business to improve water conservation and recycling in partnership with Sydney Water;
  • Install water saving technology in the new 50m Pool;

6. Waste innovation

  • Implement the shared waste contract with business at The Canopy;
  • Use The Canopy shared waste contract as a pilot program and investigate additional shared waste opportunities across the commercial sector;
  • Seek to identify additional recycling and waste minimisation opportunities through collaboration with shared services with Hunters Hill Council;

7. Car use to public and active transport

  • Prepare a Sustainable Transport Action Plan (STAP);

8. Plan for new mobility 

  • Commence transitioning Council's fleet to Electric Vehicles by 2025 including purchasing up to two additional electric vehicles in the next 12 months.
  •  Develop and include an Electric Vehicle strategy in the DCP that mandates new developments include Electric Vehicle charging infrastructure;
  • Continue to install Electric Vehicle infrastructure in public places.

These key directions will be incorporated into the 2020-2021 Delivery Program and Operational Plan and a progressive target for 2024 will be included in the 2020 - 2024 Community Strategic Plan. The progressive target will assist Council to keep on track by including achievable short, medium and long-term goals.

Council recognises there is a considerable appetite in the community to achieve long-term success through sustainability and Council has a leadership role to ensure effective action is taken. Achieving these goals will only be possible through collaboration and partnerships with residents, businesses and State and Federal Government departments.

125 years of Council

Council is celebrating its 125th anniversary in 2020! We’re celebrating with new street flags on Longueville Road in April.

Lane Cove was officially declared a municipality in February 1895 and the first Council meeting was held April in a building which once stood on the site of Central Park on Kenneth Street in Longueville. To find out more about the history of Lane Cove, including the history of Lane Cove's Mayors, please visit Lane Cove's Local History.

We’re also marking the occasion with a special display in the Library showcasing interesting elements from the early years of Council.

Celebrations and activities will continue throughout the year. Follow Council on Facebook or visit our website for updates.

50m Pool

Latest News - March 2020

The construction of Lane Cove’s new outdoor 50m pool and grandstand is swimming along nicely. Preliminary work has started on the grandstand and works on the building are expected to commence in late-March. Works are on schedule for the new pool to open in time for the 2020/21 swimming season.

Pool Update.jpg 

Latest News - December 2019

225,000 litres of water have made a splash in drought-stricken Armidale! Trucks carrying the water arrived in Armidale on Wednesday 18 December with more trucks travelling north on Thursday 19 December delivering another 225,000 litres. The water has already been deposited into a water tank and a dam at Armidale Airport used by the Rural Fire Service (RFS) for RFS helicopters and firefighting efforts across Northern NSW from the Queensland border to Tamworth.

Council is currently in the deep-end of construction of a new outdoor pool, and as part of the site safety testing, the pool was required to be filled with water and emptied. Instead of disposing of the water down the drain, Council dived right in to arrange for the water to be accepted by organisations in Armidale, NSW.

A fly-through animation of Lane Cove's new outdoor pool and grandstand can be viewed on Facebook.

Latest News - 24 May 2019

The demolition of Lane Cove’s old 50m pool and grandstand is now complete. Council has appointed Crystal Pools to build the new 50m outdoor pool. Construction will start in mid-June and works are expected to take 12 months.

 

Latest News - 16 April 2019

At the Council Meeting on Monday 15 April 2019, Council accepted the tender from Crystal Pools Pty. Ltd. to rebuild the 50 metre outdoor pool.

A tender specification was prepared in March detailing the schedule of work, hours of work, safety requirements and reporting requirements. The specification outlined that the tender submissions would be assessed based on experience, project personnel, design and construct contracts and price. Tenderers also had to complete Council's Sustainability and Environment Assessment.

Each tender was assessed based on the criteria listed above and was awarded to Crystal Pools Pty. Ltd.  A timetable will be made available once the contracts have been signed within the next two weeks.

Latest News – 27 March 2019

​Federal Member for North Sydney, Trent Zimmerman has announced the federal government will provide $2 million towards the construction of Lane Cove's new outdoor pool. Earlier this month, Mr Zimmerman organised a petition and campaign for the federal government to provide $1 million towards the construction of the new pool. The response to this petition was so strong that $2 million has been provided. The new pool will include eight lanes (the original pool had seven lanes) and a boom in the middle will allow for the pool to be separated into two 25m pools.

Latest News - 20 March 2019

Council has received requests from members of the public who would like to remove their tile from alongside the outdoor pool at Lane Cove Aquatic Centre. The tiles were decorated in 1995 and have been affixed to the wall alongside the pool for the past 24 years. If you have yet to contact Council please note that the last opportunity to remove a tile will be this Saturday 23 March, 7:00am – 3:00pm. Please wear enclosed footwear and report to the gate on the Phoenix Street side of the pool. Anyone coming along to remove a tile does so at their own risk and must bring their own equipment to remove the tile under supervision of those on-site. The tiles are fragile and therefore there is no guarantee that your tile will be able to be removed in one piece or without damage.

The Development Application for the concourse was recently submitted with one more development application to come in relation to the grandstand. Council is currently anticipating the construction of the pool will take approximately 18 months however firmer details on timing will be known at the end of April once we’ve heard back from potential suppliers.

Latest News - 8 March 2019

Council will soon start the demolition of the 50m outdoor pool and grandstand which reached the end of their lifespan in December. From Monday 11 March there will be no access to the temporary car park on the Phoenix Street side of the pool as this is converted to a works zone. The pedestrian footbridge from Little Street across to Lane Cove Aquatic Leisure Centre will be temporary closed until late April. Pedestrians can still access the Aquatic Centre via the pedestrian crossings at street level on Little Street.

The following week from Monday 18 March there will be four to six weeks of noisy daytime works as both of the concrete structures are removed. Resident notifications will start next week alerting locals to noisy daytime works from 18 March for approximately 4-6 weeks while both concrete structures are removed.

During construction Lane Cove’s Synergy Youth Centre has temporarily relocated from underneath the pool grandstand to 47 Burns Bay Road (opposite Coles).

The Development Application for the replacement pool was approved earlier this week providing the opportunity for Council to now go to market for the construction aspect of the new pool. The concourse and grandstand development applications will both be lodged this month. Now that Council can go to market for construction we will soon have a clearer construction and re-opening timeframe for the community.

FYI the indoor pools at the Aquatic Centre still remain open with construction only taking place outside.

Latest News - February 2019

Council recently appointed project architects to oversee the planning and construction of a replacement pool and grandstand following the pool's closure in December 2018. The 50m outdoor pool was built in 1961 with Council planning for its replacement in the near future.

In early February 2019 Council lodged the first of three Development Applications (DAs) for the replacement of the pool. Thank you to members of the community who took time over the Summer period to provide their feedback on the future pool and grandstand. All comments were reviewed – some relate to aspects of the future DAs and/or operation of the pool and surrounding areas once constructed. As a result not all feedback will relate to this first DA.

The DA is for 8 lanes with an accessible ramp into the pool. It is expected that the works will cost around $3million and take approximately 12 months to commission and build. This first DA includes the pool tank which is the critical feature that allows Council to go to market for a specialised Pool builder. The following two DAs will relate to the concourse and then the grandstand/associated landscaping. It is expected that these will be lodged late February or in March.

Members of the community interested in looking at the DA are welcome to view the DA online using the number 10/2019 when prompted. The formal notification process for the DA commenced on 4 February 2019 with submissions closing on 17 February 2019.

Progress of the pool's construction will continue to be made available at www.lanecove.nsw.gov.au/poolandgrandstand.

New Bus Shelters

Lane Cove is now home to nine new bus shelters installed in the past few weeks. These shelters are the first stage of works which will see more than 70 new bus shelters installed or upgraded to meet requirements set by the Disability Discrimination Act (DDA) over the next four months.

As well as new signs illuminating the location of the bus stop, the new bus shelters will provide improved undercover space for all users. Members of the public, including wheelchair and vision impaired users, will be able to easily and safely manoeuvre around each shelter.

Some night works will be required due to RMS restrictions for works on roads with higher traffic volumes, which prohibits day works on these roads. The new shelters will be set back further from the kerb which will improve manoeuvrability in front of the shelters. All shelters will be installed to meet the current Australian Standards and safety requirements.

During construction, pedestrian access and vehicle access to private driveways will be maintained with the help of traffic controllers who will be onsite to ensure safe passage for vehicles and pedestrians at times when footpath access is affected.

Two new bus shelters on Burns Bay Road near Fig Tree Street:
