Council's award-winning Expressing Our Culture: A Cultural Action Plan for Lane Cove (2004) has played a significant role in Council's projects over the past decade. A number of achievements have come out of this plan including the new Lane Cove Library, Gallery Lane Cove, increased public art and support of a diverse range of community groups.

Since the inception of the Cultural Plan back in 2004, Lane Cove has moved to an integrated planning framework. This ensures that strategies across the organisation are included in the four year Operational Plan which is reviewed on an annual basis. Elements of the previous Cultural Plan were included within the Operational Plan and in recent years the successful achievement of a number of objectives has been reported.

In 2015 Council commenced the review and renewal of Lane Cove's Cultural Action Plan (2004). The aim was to produce an updated plan that provided for the arts, cultural and cultural diversity needs of the community over the next five years.


Council undertook community engagement to obtain input into a new Draft Cultural Plan which has helped identify the community's cultural priorities and ideas for the next 10 years.

Feedback received through consultation with cultural community groups as well as a public meeting and online survey has been incorporated into Create Lane Cove: Draft Cultural Plan which reflects the latest priorities and actions.
