OG meets with Councillors

590 Orrong Road discussions continue with council

The meeting was described as cordial.

The Orrong Group met with South Ward Councillors Mayor Melina Sehr and Cr Claude Ullin on Friday 10 June 5.30pm to discuss the process proposed for the preparation of an urban design framework. (We know how to kick off a long weekend.) Of particular interest were the plans for community involvement in the UDF.

The OG and felt that there are many issues which need to be resolved before the process should commence.

Our preferred action for now is a “deferral” of the decision until these many issues are further considered. Thus we’re hoping the ward Councillors recommend a deferral at Tuesday’s meeting.

A further meeting between the OG and the Council is planned for late next week. We will keep you informed of the outcomes.  OG appreciates the time Councillors took to meet with us and look forward to ongoing communications.

We still suggest you attend Tuesday’s Council meeting to hear the debate on this important topic. Remember – the only way we’ll win this is by constant shows of community concern.
