Abbott lane fenced off

Part of the much-contested Abbott Lane was fenced off last month at the McMillan Rd end with little notice (see Kate Lamb, Councillors’ Feedback, p12), leaving a small passage on the east side of the lane, providing access for pedestrians.

According to Andrew Steel, northern Sydney unit regional manager for Department of Education & Training, in an email to council on the week the fence went up, the area was to be remediated during school holidays as a playground.

But by April 20, the Friday before school was to resume, work had yet to start. WCC general manager Nick Tobin has written to education minister Adrian Piccoli; family and community services minister Pru Goward; and local NSW MPs Gladys Berejiklian and Anthony Roberts, objecting to the fencing off until the council has been compensated and an alternative route for residents has been constructed, and urging their intervention.
