Heads up to all residents in the Ruskin Park area.
You may recall an appalling planning application for 4 Double Storey units to be crammed onto one block at 19 Pascoe Ave.
Over 140 local residents objected to this crazy plan. Maroondah Council then, quite rightly, refused to grant a planning permit. (Special shout-out to the Wyreena Ward Councillors whose efforts are greatly appreciated).
So what did the developer do in the face of such overwhelming opposition (and anger) from local residents and the local Council? Rework the plans? Nah. Discuss residents objections with them? Nah. Consider the impact of the plans on the neighbourhood? Nah.
Run straight to VCAT…yep.
So we need your help. The VCAT hearing will be held on the 4th and 5th of September 2017. We need to fight such gross over-developments to ensure the future liveability of the area. If you can support those attending the hearing or attend yourself that would be greatly appreciated.
