History of Cultural Planning in Lane Cove

Lane Cove Council adopted the Plan Expressing Our Culture: A Cultural Action Plan for Lane Cove, on 6 December 2004. 

Lane Cove Council was the first Council in NSW to develop a Cultural Plan in line with all the elements of the latest Cultural Planning Guidelines from the NSW Ministry for the Arts.

Throughout the cultural planning process, 42 consultations were undertaken with approximately 750 community members. A further six week public display period encouraged community feedback that proved to be very positive.

Recommendations for cultural projects included in the Plan are consideration for a new multi-purpose cultural centre, public art, access to a community “what’s on” calendar on Council’s website. In all, there are 162 recommendations to promote culture in Lane Cove.
