15 CENTENNIAL AVENUE- Rubble beside the river

Posted: May 28th, 2015 | Filed under: Uncategorized


You may have noticed a large pile of rubble in 15 Centennial Avenue. The site 15 Centennial Avenue was the  subject of a negotiations with Council, that resulted in concessions for the developer in exchange for the land  To all intents and purposes the property now belongs to the Community. It is planned it will be added to the creek side reserve














Michael Mason ( from Lane Cove Council ) called  to report that he has investigated the large excavation pile on 15 Centennial Ave.

He spoke with the contractor (HYCORP)

  • The pile of rubble comes from work being conducted by Sydney Water to put in a new man hole in the area
  • Apparently it was needed to be done to get machinery in to do the works
  • Michael has requested a clean-up strategy, including an immediate action plan of how they are planning to restore the area.

He will keeps us informed about what is going to happen next.

Noise from Rock breaking breaks limits

Posted: November 9th, 2014 | Filed under: Uncategorized

Lane Cove council was treated to an unusual sight last week ( Monday 13 Oct)

As well as the “usual Suspects” a medical doctor presented her measurements of the noise generated by building works on Gordon Crescent and areas adjacent. For several years Johnston Crescent residents have been complaining about he incessent noise. But nobody has actually measured the sound levels. It now appears they are not 70 decibels as allowed but up to 90 decibels (  well into the Rock concert and  WMD range)

Council has now passed a motion to require sound absorbing barriers around building sites
