Our local MP Wade Noonan is showing his support and facilitating a petition which he will present to Parliament.

The petition: Draws to the attention of the House (Legislative Assembly) the need for the Government to support Hobsons Bay City Council’s decision to reject a new multi-storey, high density development at Paine Street, Newport. The petitioners request the Legislative Assembly urges the Baillieu Government to support the Hobsons Bay City Council’s decision to reject a proposal to build more than 40 new multi-storey apartments on the old Newport Timberyard site.

Victorian Planning Minister, Matthew Guy, made a ruling on Williamstown’s Woollen Mills site, he said “The Government was elected on a platform of giving more power to councils and we mean it.” We are asking the Government to fulfil it’s election promise.
