MAKING PLANNING BETTER
We’ve organised this forum to better understand the “big picture” of planning in Victoria, and how we can most effectively intervene.
*** Carolyn Whitzman is an East Brunswick resident and Associate Professor in Urban Planning at the University of Melbourne. She will speak on:”Place, health and liveability: How can existing and new Brunswick residents get good health and liveability outcomes from current planning proposals?”

*** Carlo Carli, our former local Member of Parliament, is now writing a PhD on planning. He will discuss Caroline’s presentation.
At Clarrie Wohlers Senior Citizens Centre, 51 Albert Street (Fleming Park)

You’re welcome to email back questions you’d like discussed. There will be time for audience discussion!
Flyer attached – please print some off and if possible stick some up and give them to your neighbourns

Sunday 27 November, 12.00-3.00pm
COMMUNITY PICNIC
Come to Fleming Park to:
* Meet other residents
* Share information about building projects and planning issues that effect you
* Be entertained by fabulous local musicians including a fiddle orchestra, and the Melbourne Ukulele Kollective.
Sausage sizzle provided, gourmet items BYO
More details coming . . .

TRAFFIC ACTION
We’ve been given some details of counts and speeds after the council put counters for a fortnight in some Brunswick streets subject to rat-running. We’re asking the Council for more details.
*** If you are interested in being on our traffic working group, which has met from time to time, please let us know by return email.

207 ALBERT STREET RESTAURANT APPLICATION
** Apparently submissions on this VCAT matter close today, 28 October***
We’ve received this email from a local resident:
“The owners of the café permit on corner of Beith St are trying to extend their allocated operating hours to 10pm 7 days a week with outdoor dinning and a restaurant that accommodates 40 seats (with no car parks). Reason given for amendment is that it will make it easier for them to find a tenant. ”

Thanks for your interest,
Nancy Atkin
