Anybody for fourth of July fireworks?

Let July 4 mark the beginning of independence from poor planning.

CRITICAL DECISION ON URBAN DESIGN FRAMEWORK

BE THERE TO PROTECT 590 ORRONG ROAD

MALVERN TOWN HALL 7 PM (High St and Glenferrie Rd)

Orrong Group supports the implementation of the Urban Design Framework as it provides some valuable protection against inappropriate development for 590 Orrong Road. Importantly, the UDF proposal includes fully community consultation throughout the process – that includes you!

After recently being deferred for a few weeks to allow further consideration by Councillors, the UDF proposal will now be represented at the Council meeting at Malvern Town Hall on Monday 4 July at 7 pm.

WE NEED YOU TO ATTEND ON THE NIGHT OF 4 JULY!

WHY?
It’s a critical decision. Orrong Group needs visible community ATTENDANCE at this Council meeting. The Councillors need to see that we care about the decision. A show of community hands will make the difference on the night. (As the UDF is up early on the agenda, you don’t need to stay long)

WHAT’S NEXT?
In the shorter term, once the UDG proposal is approved, we need you to be ready to participate in the development of the UDF – and we will be calling on you to attend the community meetings to be run by Council and provide your input.

KEY POINTS TO DISCUSS WITH YOUR STONNINGTON FRIENDS

1  We believe that the development process and decision must remain with the Council.

2   We do not want any Government interference.  (Prior to the November election we obtained an assurance from the then Shadow Planning Minister, now the Government Planning Minister, Matthew Guy,  that there would be no government interference in this project)

3 We will be relying on this assurance.

Stand up for your community and get the UDF proposal approved.

Not everyone can attend but everyone can call or email their councillors.

The first email address below goes far and wide within council so is worth using. Cr Melina Sehr is of course our Mayor as well as a south ward councillor. Councillors Ullin and Smith are also south ward councillors and so particularly relevant.
