Crows Nest Over Station Development"

A key message coming out of the 10 November Over Development Protest rally in Crows Nest was that rushed development without infrastructure is unacceptable.

As featured in the latest GCA Newsletter, Lane Cove Council's application for a State Government infrastructure grant to assist widening the footpath in the cliff section of River Road has been rejected.

A video summarising the issue and proposed remedies can be viewed below. Principally, concerned residents are calling on others in the community to join them in emailing the Lane Cove General Manager, the Mayor and East Ward Councillors, to request that Council take action to reapply for the Active Transport Grant and / or to itself rectify this dangerous cliff section of the River Rd footpath, so it becomes a wider Shared User pathway.
