VCAT hearing day 5 update

590 orrong road development

Solid buildings make for an intimidating facade as this example demonstrates. Early Lend lease perchance?

Week two has begun. Four more objectors made their mark today – great work everyone. We especially enjoyed use of the adjective “brutish” to describe the aesthetic. Likewise the observation of the design, with its high buildings on the borders was like a “walled city”.

Lend Lease’s barrister cross-examined Craig Czarny of Hansen Consulting who had been called by Council as an expert witness on urban design last week. Craig did well under pressure.

Our committe is battling a lurgy that seems to date to have avoided our opposition and has us dropping like flies. So much for karma. Keep your chins and your fluids up. Happily Tuesday is a rest day.

Wednesday will see the major presentation from City of Stonnington barrister Stuart Morris QC. This is an excellent day to join us and offer your moral support. Drop in for an hour and see democracy in action.
