Mortgage Choices

Confused by the rollercoaster of policy changes
by lenders?
Stephanie Cook of Mortgage Choice in Lane Cove
said “The past year has certainly been one of the
most challenging I’ve experienced in my 19 years in
the mortgage industry.
“At face value, for those of us with home and/or investment loans,
it may appear that things have never been better in terms of low
interest rates. However, the challenges resulting from changes in the
regulatory environment and lending policies across the board have
been quite dramatic.
“The last 12 months has seen lenders changing policies at a pace
I’ve never seen before - almost in a frenzy to comply with the
‘responsible’ lending guidelines imposed by both APRA and ASIC.
Each lender has tackled the new lending environment in a slightly
different way. The end result may appear to consumers that there
is little difference between their interest rates or products. Behind
the scenes however, lenders’ policies and guidelines are dramatically
different from what they were a year ago.
“This is a great opportunity to review your current home and
investment loans to ensure you are on the best rate possible. It is
certainly not all doom and gloom, and over the last month or so we
are starting to see some easing back of the tough guidelines and
policies that were introduced a year or so ago. In addition, lenders
are aggressively competing with each other for your business.”

Some 60 members and guests recently attended a function $S2O7L5D,000
to mark the completion of ‘Project Refurbishment’ and to
officially launch Lane Cove Country Club’s change of name.

The Club will now be known as Lane Cove Golf Club.

The new name and logo was officially launched by the The
Hon. Anthony Roberts MP, Member for Lane Cove; Minister for
Industry, Resources and Energy, and Leader of The House.

Also present were Mayor of Lane Cove, Councillor Deborah
Hutchens; Patron of the Club, Councillor David Brooks-Horn,
and Councillor Soo-Tee Cheong.

Margaret Tanner, who played in the first Sunday group of
Associates in 1964, and Lawrie Sullivan, a Board member from the
early 1960’s, helped with the ribbon ceremony together with the
Club’s youngest member Lewis Abbott, who is eight years old.

Golf has been active in Lane Cove for many years. The name
‘Lane Cove Golf Club’ was originally used at a course in
Riverview, and before that in Lane Cove West.

the founding members in the early 1960's, the vision was for
an 18-hole golf course with bowling greens, bridle paths and
other recreational facilities. Today members play on an 11-hole
public course owned by Lane Cove Council.

The Club has frequently encountered confusion as to what
is a ‘Country Club’. More than 50 years later, the Club is very
pleased to reintroduce the name Lane Cove Golf Club. This
follows after the 2015 AGM members voted unanimously to
the name change which will be progressively adopted including
a new website and signage.

Today the Club has a total of 763 members with 164 golfing
members (including 11 juniors) and 599 social members. The
Club has seen a 123% increase in social membership since 2013.

Over the years, despite many challenging times which continue
to this day, the Club has stayed true to its community based
roots, best described in its mission statement as “A friendly,
affordable, community based Golf Club.”

At Council’s July meeting, it was decided that the age of 1 BIRDWOOD LANE, LANE COVE NSW 2066
eligibility for Seniors Parking be raised from 60 to 67 years
from 1 July 2016. VILLAGE OBSERVER I N0. 254 I AUGUST 2016 I 23

This follows an action arising from the Strategy for an Age-
Friendly Lane Cove Action Plan, where it was recommended
that the age be increased as respondents felt that 60 was
too young. It was also considered that it would provide older
age groups with increased access to seniors parking spaces,
improving their ability to lead independent and connected lives.

The Seniors Parking Permit Program is very popular - 620
passes were issued in 2015, 826 were issued in 2015 and to
date, 519 have been issued in 2016. The passes are renewed
every two years and there are currently 31 seniors parking
spaces available in Lane Cove.

Existing permit holders will not be affected by the new changes
and they are not retrospective. The age of eligibility will be
reviewed again in May 2019.

40 I THE VILLAGE OBSERVER IINn0.f25o4 :I AUwGUSwT Entropy Photographic Exhibition

Nine members of Lane Cove Creative
Photography are staging a fine art
photographic exhibition in September.

The exhibition is titled ‘Entropy’ and
features the work of each photographer
with their different interpretation of a
single concept.

• Date: Wednesday 7th to Sunday
18th September

• Time: Monday to Friday, 11am-5pm
Saturday to Sunday, 11am-4pm

• Venue: Art Space on the Concourse,
409 Victoria Ave, Chatswood



Your favourite blouse is unwearable. It’s sitting at the back
of the wardrobe with other items that need repair – maybe
a shirt with a torn cuff, a zip that needs tweaking or perhaps
a necklace that needs re-stringing. They’re all too good to
throw out, but too shabby to wear.

At the Repair Café, you can use our sewing machines, our
collection of buttons, our whet-stones (to sharpen those blunt
kitchen knives), or a dab of special glue – all with assistance
from our volunteer helpers.

Any day travelling round Sydney, you see lots of household
items being tossed out for a small fault, which could be easily
fixed and brought back to useful life.

A kitchen blender with a cracked cover. Rusted garden shears.
A wobbly chair.

Collecting these roadside piles and sending off to landfill
(which is so unsustainable) is costing ratepayers.

Repair Café Northside operates on the donations people give
on the day, and is under the auspices of the Permapatch
Community Garden. The hall is provided by the Uniting Church.
The cafe serves up a luscious selection to go with the organic
fair-trade coffee. Look out for the pumpkin biscotti, lime
shortbread, and savoury rice-and-peanut slice – all healthy
treats prepared by our special cook, Wendy.

Held on the first and second Sunday of each month from 1-3pm
in the Uniting Church hall, corner Mowbray Rd and Pacific
Highway. Ample parking at rear. For more information, phone
Wendy Dwyer on 0410 280 912.
