Malvern East Group Forms to Oppose
Press Release 11 July 2005
Following a meeting at Serrell St Uniting Church Hall on June
26th, residents have formed the Malvern East Group (MEG) to
oppose inappropriate development in the area. The group will work
to change the current planning regime.
MEG Working Group member Scott Samuel said, "The Bracks
Government's Melbourne 2030 planning framework ignores the
realities of Melbourne's demographics and aspirations. This
deeply flawed system encourages high and medium density
developments that harm neighbourhood character and diminish the
green canopy of greater Melbourne. We must act to preserve the
things we value about our suburbs."
"MEG seeks a moratorium and
complete review of Melbourne 2030." He explained that MEG would
work towards this objective by:
"We want residents across the suburbs to know that Bracks
Government planning policies threaten the very characteristics
that make Melbourne one of the world's most livable cities"
- Monitoring development applications in Malvern East;
- Participating in the City of Stonnington's Community
- Lobbying State Government in conjunction with 49 other
residents' groups across Melbourne;
- Publicising the flaws and harmful consequences of Melbourne
- Making Melbourne 2030 a state election issue
