GCA Executive states that the article, titled "Lane Cove Coup - What has been agreed" featured on page five of the 24 May 2018 edition of the North Shore Times, is both inaccurate and misleading. The third point of their summary is wrong. St Leonards South proceeding is not a pre-requisite for the units on the Highway to be included in future housing targets for the area.

A GCA explanation of this article about the St Leonards South Master Plan is set out in the following comment paper:

St Leonards and Crows Nest Station Planned Precinct

GCA Recent Submissions to the Department of Planning

With the construction of the Crows Nest Metro Station in progress, the NSW Department of Planning has targeted the St Leonards and Crows Nest area as a growth centre for jobs and housing.

The Department is moving towards release of its draft plan for the St Leonards and Crows Nest Station Precinct.
See details here : Planning NSW - Plans for Priority Growth Areas and Precincts
St Leonards and Crows Nest

This Precinct includes a significant part of East Ward of Lane Cove.

So what happens within the Planned Precinct will impact Lane Cove residents who live within it and those adjacent to it. Since July 2016 the Department has been working with Councils and the community towards the development of this draft plan.

The GCA has participated in this process for several reasons:
  • the process offers a unique opportunity to get things right for an area that has suffered from lack of coordination of development/development impacts by the three Councils (Lane Cove, Willoughby and North Sydney) that control the Precinct
  • the development of the Precinct will directly impact the portion of Greenwich outside the precinct and other adjacent communities
  • if Lane Cove Council decides to proceed with the St Leonards South Master Plan, the plan is to be amended to be consistent with Department’s plans for the Precinct.
The GCA has made three recent submissions to the Department in relation to the Precinct Plan.
