    Hullo Andrew,

    Thanks for your update on the next Council meeting. I’m sure the Community will be interested in the business case for the proposed Recreation Precinct at the golf club. I doubt it’s worth the paper it’s printed on in the same way that the telephone survey was totally flawed withe leading questions. From memory the first question was “are you in favour of Women’s Sport” which then led into other questions that steered respondents into supporting the proposal.

    On another matter – 266 Longueville Rd. The proposal for Aged Care and Retirement housing on the former site of the Lane Cove Women’s Bowling Club should be halted. The Australian Unity development is opposed by local residents and once again would result in the loss of recreational land and tonight I signed a petition to have the approval with Australian Unity rescinded.

    Thanks for your time,


    Regards

    Congratulations on the new role and great move on keeping BCO natural. I for one cannot see the sense in synthetic grass, the whole world does not revolve around children’s sport at the expense of everyone else. Thank you.

    4) NOTICE OF MOTIONNARRIEARRA STATION PURCHASE
    Proposal to turn it into a state forest instead of a national park.
    Sadly National parks are very restrictive. You cannot hunt, fish, ride trail bikes, the use of 4×4s is limited and camping is also restricted.

    Hi Andrew,

    I use the bike path on Epping Road most days to get to Macquarie Park. However its terrible on Bin Mornings. The residents and the garbage collectors leave bins all over the cycle-way, making it an obstacle course for cyclists and often causing congestion as cyclists have to stop and let others pass. It would be great if something could be done to address this (From Lane Cove, through Ryde all the way to Epping). It occurs all the way in the different suburbs.


    Also the shared bike path on River Road West is really overgrown and really needs some maintenance.


    It also might be worth considering the configuration of the bus stop in front of Greenwich public school. Perhaps moving it off the main road into the alcove on river road adjacent to the school.

    River Rd West parking is a danger as vision of on coming traffic is often seriously diminished by parked cars in every available spot between driveways a busy arterial road being reduced to single lane not surprising this city traffic is in gridlock

    I definitely want to help these communities. How will the Mayor’s of these communities know who to distribute these funds to? Has consideration been given to the Country Women’s Association which has a programme offering vouchers to those in need to use in their own community or the Rural Aid Drought Relief Programme. The buy a bale programme pays for fodder, water, freight and allows for general donations distributed to those in need. Will this assistance programme be ongoing as the drought has no end date?

    Thank you for alerting us to this extra-ordinary meeting.

    This sounds very noble, but I have concerns about the flow of cash in this manner – the opportunity for corruption is promoted in this situation. We can all press hand on heart and say “I would never” but some might fail the temptation.

    My provisos to the situation would be that only cards that can be used in grocery stores be used, and not Visa or MasterCard debits, and that initially no member of any council be eligible for such a card.

    It would not be appropriate for ANY council members to be first in-line for these gifts, and I suggest that council members be last on the list, and the mayor the last of all on the list to ensure equity and fairness to all.

    Dear Andrew

    Item 14 on the minutes of the last meeting flagged the possibility of a dementia friendly initiative. I am carer for my husband who has dementia. I am well versed in the needs of dementia sufferers and have regular contact with Dementia Australia. I believe I could contribute to discussions about this initiative. Please feel free to contact me if you think I could be of help.

    regards

    Marcelle

    It’s appalling for Council to duckshove the responsibility for the St Leonards South ‘plan’ on the Government after seven years of shilly-shallying on the issue. Developers took a huge financial risk on buying up homes at overinflated prices, thinking that the Council would simply give a green light to an inappropriate development and totally ignore the views of the community. Even worse is the ‘plan’ creeping back into the Housing section of the Draft Strategic Plan: the residents of the Central and West Wards would be similarly outraged if an extra 4500 were dumped in their area, when the Council will have more than exceeded its targets in the apartment blocks west of the Pacific Highway in St Leonards-Crows nest. The IPP report was most illuminating!

    Hi Andrew,

    1. It already takes about 3 years to get large development applications through. I think you need to chat to quality developers to help improve the system.

    2. Why is there no talk about infrastructure from Labor?

    3. Why is there no work towards decentralisation of universities and government departments?

    4. You would also be mindful that if the Liberals have signed contracts you work to complete these projects. Its better than paying the full fare for abortive works.

    Being now in the aged care sector as a client (rather than working for an aged care provider ie both ANGLICARE & HammondCare), I feel there is a major shortage of residential care in the Lane Cove area.

    I have recently been diagnosed with MS at the age of 66. I would like the option of living in independent residential aged care now if I need it. I don’t see much choice in this sector on the Lower North Shore now.

    HammondCare has specialised in this sector for many many years way back to there work at Hammonville during the depression and war.

    If aged care housing was made available at Greenwich HammondCare would certainly be a provider option I would consider. I am particularly attracted by their Christian ethos!

    I would also hope that they would continue to provide the current services of the hospital.

    I am currently an in hospital rehab patient at Greenwich and am finding its care and treatment highly valuable!

    As a matter of interest unrelated to this, I find My health fund (NIB) does not cover me to use the rehab service once I am an outpatient.

    I hope LC Council will consider the expanded use of the Greenwich Hospital site.

    Regards

    Hi Andrew,


    I just wanted to say that I love what you and your team have done to provide these video updates for us local residents.


    As a long time Lane Cove resident, I haven’t seen anything like this before, and I’m glad you’ve finally done it!


    As an under 30, usually we don’t hear enough about what’s going on locally.


    More videos would be great if you could!


    Yours Sincerely,

    Hi Andrew, I was disappointed to hear Michael Daley on the radio saying that the North Shore and Northern Beaches weren’t pulling their weight as far as development was concerned after having said at a meeting that he wouldn’t accept development in his area like development that is proposed in St Leonards South. With an impending election I would like to know what is Labor’s stand regarding development in St Leonards and Crows Nest. There is a lot of anger out there. I think most people aren’t opposed to development. They are just opposed to over development. Whatever is built is going to be there for a long time so it needs to be done properly. This current government is expecting people to put up with a lot of disruption and change without listening to them. Will Labor be any different should they win government?
