Andrew Zbik for Lane Cove



We are seeking a moratorium to stop developers being able to change local planning rules to suit them until local infrastructure can catch up to current development.

Did you know that developers can ask the State Government to change local planning rules set by Council?

They can also appeal to the State Government to ask for environmental rules to be changed if they can’t get their plans passed by Council.

Lane Cove has already exceeded the 2021 Housing Target set by the State Government.

The NSW State Government has still not released the Land Use Infrastructure and Implementation Plan (LUIIP) that would explain how it will help Lane Cove provide upgraded services to its residents.

Until we have that plan, development must slow down!

We, the undersigned, demand a moratorium on residential planning proposals in the Lane Cove Local Government Area until the NSW Government releases its Land Use Infrastructure and Implementation Plan (LUIIP) and any changes to the Lane Cove Local Environment Plan have been gazetted.

    Fabulous to see Andrew persevering with this with Council against the State’s big guns. Until/unless there is adequate and appropriate infrastructure put in place, this bullying by State Government has to be resisted.

    Development Slow Down is essential if we are to go on living in Lane Cove, or Sydney. With Limited water supplies and sewage disposal Sydney will run out if there is not a HALT to this excessive growth.

    Lane Cove has grown far too quickly over the past 10 years. It has changed the face and feel of the village, and put pressure on roads, schools and sporting facilities for our children (witness the difficulties that Norths Basketball is having with securing a stadium long term, despite being one of the largest junior clubs in NSW). Something has to give, we need to fight for our community and its children.

    We definitely need more or bigger schools and high school would be useful too.

    Until public infrastructure is brought in line with growth forecasts, this is an unsustainable situation. Where will these children go to school? Play? Receive healthcare?

    There are far too many apartments being built in St. Leonards, and yet more are planned. The process must be stopped until the State government plans for the area are released. There should be no more building until adequate infrastructure and open space is provided for the thousands of people who will be residing in this area.

    Developers should not be able to influence the State Government to change local olannng rules or appeal to ask for environmental rules to be changed if Council won’t pass them. This is just another example of how the State Government does not govern for the people of NSW. It would appear that brown paper bags are still very popular with some politicians.
