Draft Minutes February 2018 Annual General Meeting HERE


On very short notice, many community members made it to the Council meeting on 20 August. Excellent speeches from many, great support from even more and the overriding message is that we want the development train to halt until we know what targets we have before us and, more importantly, that the infrastructure required to support all this development will match population increases.

Councillors voted 6-0 in favour of Andrew Zbik's motions: -

1) our Council staff and Councillors to work with their North Sydney and Willoughby counterparts to ensure that the infrastructure needs of the St Leonards Crows Nest Precinct Plan are addressed;

2) Council to seek a moratorium on lodgement of any further Planning Proposals to re-zone land for residential purposes in Lane Cove until the earlier of the finalisation of the Precinct Plan or 1 July 2020; and

3) Council to ask the Minister for Planning make the necessary legislative changes to support 2 above.

We hope that Council will follow up on these resolutions as a matter of urgency. It is increasingly apparent that the community looks to our Councillors to push back on development demands that erode infrastructure and amenity.

St Leonards South Master Plan still a live issue

The SLS Master Plan is still very much a live issue, despite strong reaction from Greenwich and adjacent residents.

Over 400 submissions to meet the absurd 5 January deadline shows the strength of community feeling.

Council resolved on 19 March to seek the Minister's consent to delay its decision on the Master Plan until public release and consideration of the draft Precinct Plan for St Leonards / Crows Nest.

Good news but this is not yet guaranteed, nor do we know what conditions may be attached.

For most of our elected Councillors, the Master Plan is still very much an option they could pursue.

For a detailed GCA Executive update on the Master Plan please refer to the following document:
