Local residents object to Lane Cove Council land ‘sell-off’ to Australian Unity for high-rise village

Published on

The new wave of consumer advocacy: While the council claims that the retirement village is ‘sorely needed’, local residents point to the impact that three buildings up to seven storeys on a disused lawn bowls club overlooking the water and bushland will have.

They also point out the council incentive of the $34 million they will receive for the 99-year lease negotiated with Australian Unity.

The development will include 82 retirement apartments and a 70-bed care facility. It will contribute to a new public park as well.
