Current events: The developer has submitted amended plans to VCAT, with no improvements of any significance. Concerns of residents, Council, and park users have been given scant regard. Additionally, new alterations make the development more gated and closed off from the surroundings.
Action required: We have VCAT permission to submit a joint Statement of Grounds form reinforcing previous objections and further objecting to the amendments, this can be co-signed by residents rather than residents having to submit individual SoG. This should save everyone a lot of effort. But we need this signed ASAP.
What to do: Drop by the park this weekend and co-sign the SoG, it will only take a minute. Assistants will be in Armstrong Reserve between 2pm and 3pm, Saturday and Sunday.
