REFORMED ZONES FOR VICTORIA 2012 Submission by Liz Burton Planning and Environment Advocate
NEWS FROM VANCOUVER which is always being held up to us as a well planned city - here is the real truth and it is not good
Very enlightening to see State Shadow Planning Minister Brian Tee in the Age Business section on the 13th telling us what we already suspected that if he gets back into Government they will simply keep going with their hated and failed Melboune 2030 plan together with Melbourne @5 million, which was so unpopular across Melbourne that it helped bring down the Brumby Government. It does fit in with a speech I heard Brian Tee give in parliament that he was proud to belong to the party that brought in Melbourne 2030.
Remember that it involves cramming more high rise high density at railway stations and along and near all transport routes as well as developments dotted through the whole of suburbia and being opposed by all communities. He also mentions that they will keep the extended Urban Growth Boundary.
I notice Kelvin Thomson is quoted. These donations should be banned otherwise there is always this suspicion that decisions are compromised.
