VALE BOB CAMPBELL
Has there been anybody who has given more in so many different ways
to Greenwich? Bob has always been involved. He is probably best known
for his organisation and support of the Greenwich Sports Club. So many
children over the years have benefited from Bob’s guidance and
enthusiasm in one or more of the Sports Club’s teams.
Rest well Bob Campbell

Lane Cove Council on 21st June 2004 passed a motion to enter into a
financial agreement with Woolworths for the erection of a supermarket,

MARJORIE PROPSTING LIBRARY
Now in its 40th year. New DVDs and music CDs have just arrived for
This major development on the Sunshine Homes site was scheduled for
decision by Council on 2nd August, but has been deferred until 6th
The main explanation from the Mayor was that the previous notification did
not clearly identify all the affected properties, in particular Wisdom Rd.
A number of residents who were attending their first of Council meeting were
surprised at the conduct of the meeting.
This proposal is becoming more controversial as time goes on. For instance,
the proposal would have a density (or Floor Space Ratio) of 0.97 where the
benchmark suggested by the relevant SEPP 5 planning policy is 0.5.
At no time has Council explained why there is support for this development
at almost double the recommended benchmark
Other unexplained deviations from SEPP 5 recommendations or limitations include
the height of the proposed building.
Traffic during and after construction are also a very pressing problem. It
is proposed that trucks used for demolition and excavation leave the site by
two of the narrowest roads in the area; Ulonga Ave and Innes Rd.
Alison and Andrew Grzina, who have looked after the young to the old at the
Greenwich Pharmacy since 1995, have left to take a vacation and spend more
time with their new family.
Alison and Andrew continued the tradition, established by their predecessor
Brian McConaghy, of caring for their customers. We welcome Katharina, who will
take over the pharmacy.
16 September: Hear our youth debate with Councillors on the topic “Graffiti – Youth
