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.

    We have exceeded the 2021 Housing Target. Why are we allowing more development? Time to slow down and take stock.

    Lane Cove has contributed more than its share of high density development. The 2016 census shows that only 42% of our homes are single dwelling houses, so we are already a medium density suburb – which may be desirable for an inner ring area.

    However, we don’t have the infrastructure to support the growth we already have. We need more schools, probably a brand new high school. RNS hospital is already struggling and its old- fashioned ward style accommodation is inappropriate, especially when men and women have to share four bed wards. Very few new parks have been developed to meet the needs of families and other residents in large apartment blocks that don’t boast a single tree, let alone a garden area where adults can sit quietly or children can play.

    Until the infrastructure catches up with the residential development and until we at least know what the State Government intends with its LUIIP, we need a halt on all new residential development.

    I’m terrified of what the future will bring. Public transport services are horrendous. Access to the shopping precinct is horrendous. Private vehicle access to and in the shopping precinct is horrendous. Disability parking in the shopping precinct is non existent.

    I feel trapped and hemmed in.

    I am getting out before it becomes unbearable.

    I feel sorry for the wildlife because they can’t escape and have nowhere to go😞

    The traffic around Lane Cove is appalling in peak hours ( which seem to be getting longer and longer ). Parking is also a night mare. Despite the hugh increase in density, nothing has been done to deal with these issues.

    The St Leonards South plan represents everything modern town planning should not be.

    We have been crammed in with no thought for infrastructure. Residence are struggling to multipurpose parks, lining up for overcrowded buses, dealing with clear ways and no parking areas and not to mention the dust and disruption of the building of these apartment blocks.
