We are volunteers who are passionate about protecting the neighbourhood character of
Malvern East, and are more than willing to help you with the process of opposing inappropriate
development. We belong to a grass-root movement that counts over 250 local action groups in
metropolitan Melbourne. Our objective is to ultimately convince Governments to truly protect
existing neighbourhoods and the amenity of residents. We want Government to impose
stricter controls and limits on development in established neighbourhoods.
To achieve this aim, we actively participate in local Government planning processes, we
lobby Councillors and State Government, and monitor the decisions of the Victorian
Administrative Appeals Tribunal (VCAT). In so doing, we have gained valuable insights into
the planning processes and have the knowledge to assist fellow Malvern East residents in
defending their streets against inappropriate development.
Our ultimate aim of convincing Government to curb development excesses in established
neighbourhoods can only be achieved if we can demonstrate that our grass roots movement is
growing. For this reason, membership is a condition for receiving free advice and support.
Membership only costs $5 per person per annum. Members are not required to volunteer time and
effort, although this would of course be greatly appreciated. If you wish to discuss joining
our group, please feel free to contact us.
