Item 1 -  7 Holden Street, Northwood


Councillors met on site at 8am, all present were invited to inspect the property.  Height poles and string lines were erected on site to show the maximum building envelope and height of the proposed addition.  Councillors heard the concerns of objectors, which centred on perceived increase in bulk and scale and loss of view.  Councillors and observers were invited to view the site from the adjoining properties of 5A and 5 Holden Street.  The owners of 5A Holden Street provided limited access to Councillors only.


Item 2 – Lane Cove Golf Course 17th Green – Vegetation Management Plan


Councillors met on the 17th green at Lane Cove Golf Course to discuss the staff Vegetation Management Plan with interested parties. Copies of the written work plan and cadastral plan were provided for information. The Councillors and others viewed the vegetation marked for removal (pink ribbon) or pruning (red/white ribbon) in accordance with the staff plan.


Various parties asked questions of the staff, or raised issues relevant to their views.


The Mayor thanked all for their attendance, questions and comments, and advised that the matter would be discussed at Monday night’s Council meeting (7 December 2009).
