Checking out The Canopy

As councillors we can learn a lot from what other councils do well. This evening we visited The Canopy at Lane Cove Council and it seems to have it all.

✅ 500 parking spaces
✅ Green space with performance area / screen (currently playing Nadal vs Medvedev)
✅ Children’s playground, sandpit, and shade
✅ Street Dining
✅ Two major supermarkets
✅ Electric vehicle charging
✅ Pedestrian Bridge

With the Lindfield Village Green completing next month, we will get a mini version of this although I know residents would like to explore making it even better (with shade and play equipment). We’ll explore the possibility late in the year.

The Lindfield Village Hub will provide us a greater opportunity to do this and as a start, Ku-ring-gai has poached the person responsible for delivering The Canopy in Lane Cove to also deliver the Hub in Lindfield.
