Housing strategy 2036

The strategy proposes that the future residential growth be concentrated in there Focus Areas:

  • Focus area 1 to be within existing medium and high density zones,
  • Focus area 2 to be within the proposed B4 Mixed Use zone which surround the B3 Commercial Core of the Central Business District
  • Focus area 3 within the local centres

This strategy continues with Council’s desire to protect the dormitory suburbs of Chatswood, Chatswood West, Roseville and Lane Cove North from over-development for residential use.

Chatswood RSL move

The RSL will soon be submitting a Concept Development Application (DA) to Willoughby City Council to redevelop the Club’s site with a new RSL Club on the lower levels and a commercial tower above.

Following the assessment of suitable properties, they have exchanged contracts with Guide Dogs Australia to purchase 2-4 Thomas Street, which is conveniently located directly opposite the Club.

This purchase will allow the Club to totally relocate and to continue to provide most of the existing amenities during the construction period to ensure the safety and convenience of all members and staff. While plans for the Club and office tower are progressed over the coming years, the Club intends to lease back the building to Guide Dogs Australia.

Northern beaches tunnel

The Premier has been advising residents along the proposed route of the proposed new expressway that the eastern side of Flat Rock Drive Reserve will be alienated for a Dive Site for the tunnel for 4-5 years. This is before the Environmental Impact Statement (EIS) for the project has been undertaken.

This approach by the government of ‘do first, plan later’ is consistent with the government’s intent to make it easier for large project to be approved in NSW.
