From Batman to Cooper, from Moreland to…..?

A group of locals, including community leaders and Indigenous elders from the Wurundjeri Woi-wurrung Cultural Heritage Aboriginal Corporation (WWCHAC), have alerted the City of Moreland to the racism and trauma associated with the name “Moreland.”

In a new campaign, they are calling for the name of the municipality to be changed, stating “‘Moreland’ is a name loaded with racist glorification. Now we’re going to see it changed!”

The name Moreland was introduced to the Port Phillip District in 1839 by newly arrived land speculator Farquhar McCrae. His grandfather had been involved in the operation of a large slave plantation known as “Moreland” in the Jamaican province of Vere. The Moreland plantation and slave estate operated from at least 1783 to 1887. This name was introduced into the Port Phillip District colony by the land speculator, to commemorate the plantation his family helped operate.

The present City of Moreland was created and named in 1994 during the Kennett government’s local government amalgamations, that saw Brunswick swallowed into the larger Local Government Area. Concerns about the racist origins of the name were raised at the time, but ignored by the government.

Now, a call to change the name of the municipality has again been issued by Deputy Chair Andrew Gardiner of the Wurundjeri Woi-wurrung Cultural Heritage Aboriginal Corporation, supported by board member Julieanne Axford and WWCHAC staff Gail Smith, Tony Garvey and Dr Klara Hansen. They are supported in this initiative by Rev. Alistair Macrae (past National President, Uniting Church in Australia); former MHR for Wills Phil Cleary; former Moreland councillor Jo Connellan and researcher Rod Duncan.

It’s time to discuss this history. The nearby Federal parliamentary seat of Batman, held by ALP MP Ged Kearney, was recently changed to the name “Cooper” – a commemoration of William Cooper, one of the founders of the Australian Aborigines’ League, who organised a Day of Mourning in 1938 to mark the sesqui-centenary of the arrival of the British.

Brunswick Residents Network encourages people living in Moreland to support this initiative. As people living in Bulleke-Bek, on the unceded land of the Wurundjeri Woi-wurrung people of the Kulin nation, we echo the call from the WWCHAC statement: “Replacing this name offers a timely opportunity for a landmark statement supporting awareness, truth-telling and ongoing respect. Choosing a new name together can be a process of sharing, acknowledgment and mutual respect, so we’re not suggesting any specific replacement name.”

Moreland Council is now considering its response and the issue will likely be debated at the December Council meeting. Many locals will support the change, but a few of the Councillors may need some urging!

There’s a website that tells much of the story, with a place you can Add Your Name to support changing a name that glorifies slavery and dispossession. We encourage you to join this discussion about our history, heritage and future together.

Ditch the scorecard

A number of community groups have launched a petition, calling on Moreland Council to scrap its Design Excellence Scorecard – please sign today!

On Wednesday 8 December, councillors will vote on whether to include the Scorecard permanently in the Moreland Planning Scheme, supposedly to incentivise developers to build “good design.”

BRN and other residents groups are concerned the Moreland community is in danger of losing its right to have a say over controversial developments using the Scorecard mechanism. A key incentive for developers to use the Scorecard is that the developer gets extra meetings with council planning staff, and then the application is decided by the staff without any reference to our elected councillors.

While the community will have the right to be notified and object to a project, we will lose our right to present our objections to the councillors’ monthly planning meeting (the Planning and Related Matters meeting). No other council has such an undemocratic arrangement.

For more detailed information, listen to local residents and a presentation by planning expert Stephen Rowley, explaining why large controversial developments should be decided by our elected representatives, and not by unelected officials behind closed doors.

Brunswick councillors take Mayoral posts 

At a special meeting on 17 November, Moreland City Council elected a new mayor for 2021-22: Councillor Mark Riley.

Mark Riley is one of three representatives of Moreland’s South Ward and a member of the Australian Greens. The new Deputy Mayor is Lambros Tapinos, another long-serving South Ward Councillor and member of the Australian Labor Party.

In his first address as Mayor, Cr Riley thanked outgoing mayor Annalivia Carli-Hannan and said that he was “proud to be standing here as the first out queer Mayor of Moreland.”

On the night, both were elected unopposed to their positions, although there was the usual behind the scenes coalition building (after Riley was nominated by fellow Green Angelica Panapolous, Cr Milad El-Hababi nominated Tapinos to contest the post, but he declined. El-Habi then nominated Cr Helen Pavlidis, who also declined the nomination).

Independent Oscar Yildiz was notably absent on the night, and on his Facebook page that night remarked bitterly: “it’s all about the deals and tonight yet again proved the Greens/Labor deal that was done last year to screw me over.”

Both councillors Riley and Tapinos are Brunswick residents and familiar with local issues, and we look forward to working with them over the next year.

BRN promotes walking to Glasgow

As international delegates met in Glasgow for the 26th conference of the parties to discuss more urgent climate action, a series of rallies were held around Moreland to call for local and global responses to the climate emergency.
In Brunswick, a coalition of climate groups organised an event at Warr Park. Brunswick MP Tim Read highlighted the role of gas and methane in exacerbating emissions, while BRN’s Nancy Atkin spoke to the crowd, highlighting the ways that local action can contribute, by facilitating walking, cycling and public transport; greening our streets and extending parklands; building better; and shopping locally.

The event was capped off by the Moreland Climate Cup – The Race to Zero Emissions, with contestants running a “coal and spoon” race to the finish line. Looking at photos of the event, we think the horse “Federal government” was a ring in and should have been disqualified: when did you ever see anyone from the Federal government wearing a T-shirt saying “no room for racism”?

City of Brunswick revisited

People who mourn the People’s Republic of Brunswick – swallowed by the City of Moreland – and nerds interested in local government may be interested in this thesis by Joshua McDonnell at the University of Western Australia. At a time when many people are alienated from political institutions and cynical about the effectiveness of local government, McDonnell’s thesis examines whether there is a significant loss of internal political efficacy as councils get bigger under amalgamation.

Using case studies from SA and WA, he documents how smaller councils are more agile, transparent and easier for citizens to navigate (although larger councils are utilising size to try to increase effective engagement). Interesting factoid from his research: doubling the size of Councils lessens contacts with councillors by average of 20% and attendance at meetings by an average 32%!

Feature article:
Walking in Brunswick

The importance of walking around Brunswick safely, for exercise, transport and enjoyment, has been highlighted during the 2020–21 Covid pandemic.

“Walking in Brunswick – How to make walking in Brunswick safer and more enjoyable” is a report published by the Brunswick Residents Network (BRN). The report presents the findings of our survey about improving amenity and safety for pedestrians in Melbourne’s inner north, collating responses from more than 920 people who live and work across Brunswick east, west and central.

This study shows that people walk for health, for enjoyment, for convenience, for the environment – but also because they can’t afford not to. For all these reasons, it is crucial that barriers to walking are removed: that basic pedestrian infrastructure is brought up to scratch, that more aggressive steps are taken to slow traffic and keep it out of our residential streets, that our streets are beautified, and that the threat of violence is addressed.

At a time when many more people are walking because of the Covid-19 pandemic, the report highlights diverse issues that affect different members of the community as they move around the suburb. Nearly everyone walks, but there are important differences in the extent and enjoyment of walking – poor pedestrian infrastructure and bad urban design disadvantage many groups, including the very young and old, those living with disabilities and those concerned about personal safety. There are real issues of equity involved, yet pedestrians rarely have an organised voice to highlight their needs.

The BRN report makes a series of recommendations to state and local government about improving safety and mobility for people of all ages and abilities. The recommendations highlight the need for an integrated approach to walking, addressing urban planning, community engagement, infrastructure investment and traffic management.

Together with other community representatives, BRN has been meeting with Moreland Council staff to discuss ways we can address these recommendations. In addition, Deputy Mayor Tapinos will table the report at December’s Council meeting and move for a report on implementing some key recommendations.

Check out the full report (link below), but here’s a few key findings:

Green and beautiful streets

A crucial finding of the survey is that people want, first and foremost, is shady trees and more pleasant streets.

A clear majority of people surveyed believe more shady trees would make them walk more often. Shade is an important issue in an era of climate emergency, given the cooling effect of trees. Verandas right across the footpath should also be required to provide shade. came in first on both these counts. One survey respondent put their finger on it, asking for “Significantly more green spaces – for half the year, walking is just almost impossible due to lack of shade and intense heat”.

In addition, many people said they want to walk through nice places. Trees contribute to this, but there are a lot more positive suggestions about how to make walking enjoyable: attractive parks and gardens, more interesting buildings, art on the streets. When asked about places we avoid, these included ugly and noisy places – especially Sydney Road, which was often criticised in survey responses

One person said: “Sydney Road is horrible to walk along, with its unwashed, black tar, multi-patched footpaths; service holes every 2-3 metres, odd grades. I stumbled along Sydney Road as a teenager and now I am middle aged I am still stumbling, and picking up the elderly and the small as I go. Will I be elderly before walkers are considered as cars are in Sydney Road?” (Sydney Road Traders Association take note!)

Community safety to encourage walking

Another key feature of survey responses was that many residents would walk more if they felt safer on our streets, parks and laneways. The survey responses highlighted concerns around three equally important aspects of safety: Safety from falls or injuries resulting from poor infrastructure; safety from being injured by a vehicle, and safety from violent attack.

Check out the full report for details, which shows significant differences over perceived safety, according to age and gender. For example, 46% of women agree that  “I would walk more often if I wasn’t worried about my safety”, compared to 16% of men. Women are also more likely to prioritise street lighting. These results clearly show that the fear of attack is preventing people walking, in particular women. But we should not ignore the 16% of men who state that safety concerns make them walk less. People want Moreland Council to plan for innovative solutions to safety that will enhance rather than restrict mobility and encourage walking.

There’s also lots or recommendations relating to make walking easier, such as a special program to systematically upgrade the terrible quality of Brunswick footpaths, and further initiatives to manage speeding traffic and rat running.

Equity for pedestrians

We all walk, but some members of our community walk more often or more easily than others. And a key finding of the report is that a surprising number of people HAVE to walk, with their transport options constrained by age, disability, poverty, legal restrictions of other constraints. People surveyed gave comments like “can’t afford a car” and “I have a disability that prevents me from driving or cycling, so walking is my primary mode of transport”. That’s almost one in twenty respondents.
Our proposals to Council include calls for greater priority for pedestrians in transport,  traffic and other budget areas, but also further research to assess how many residents do not have access to a car. We think this is under-estimated. EG Council website mistakenly quotes Census stats of households where there was a car on census night, as households with access to a car. This may not be true (e.g. work car, guest car, or share house car).

Fixing hots spots

Our report includes the fifteen most commonly mentioned danger hot spots, with people highlighting the hazards to pedestrians crossing the street, avoiding speedy traffic and dodging cyclists on the footpath (a particular concern for the elderly on shared paths and through parklands). A full list of hot spots on the BRN website.

Brunswick Residents Network would be happy to do a presentation about the survey to your organisation or community group, to discuss community engagement around planning, traffic management and open space in Melbourne’s inner north. With any enquiries or speaker requests, please contact us at email: brunswickresidentsnetwork@gmail.com or call Nancy Atkin on 0490182041.

Planning updates

Parkland projects debated at VCAT

As we go to press, the Victorian Civil and Administrative Tribunal (VCAT) is holding hearings between 16-25 November on Stockland’s application to build two 8-storey towers (resubmitted as 9 storeys!) at 429 Albert Street Brunswick, near Gilpin and Clifton parks.

A local community network, Scale it Down, has been established to co-ordinate responses to the Stockland project, as well as a nearby proposal from developers for two 10 storey towers at 395 Albert Street, just down the road. The second VCAT case on the Mirvac proposal will be heard between 3-14 December – although it is a separate imitative, issues relating to Stockland will flow over into the second hearing.

Scale it Down report: “Thanks to a tremendous community response, we were able to raise $20,000 from over 150 donors. This has enabled us to engage an expert Town Planning Consultant to prepare for and advocate at the VCAT hearing. In addition, 300 community objectors have become joint parties to the Scale it Down formal VCAT objection. The chance for success at VCAT is significantly boosted by contracting a Town Planning Consultant to:

  • Analyse and critique Stockland’s Planning Proposal in the context of Moreland’s Planning Scheme, the Planning Minister’s design overlay and the surrounding park environment.
  • Prepare the Scale it Down community joint-objection to the development at VCAT.
  • Provide advice to a small team of community objectors to prepare individual cases strategically aligned to the Scale it Down community joint objection.
  • Advocate during the 8 days of the VCAT Hearing, which includes presenting our case, responding to Stockland’s numerous presenters and cross-examining the expert witnesses engaged by Stockland.”

Mirvac was successful in its request for State Planning Minister Dick Wynne to intervene and introduce a planning design overlay for the Albert Street precinct. Mirvac and Stockland then submitted two major multi-storey development applications, expecting that this Ministerial intervention in Moreland’s planning scheme will allow them to build multi-storey towers. Challenging both Stockland’s and Mirvac’s interpretation of the changed planning scheme is crucial, as the cases will set a VCAT precedent for any future developments along the boundary of the Brunswick Central Parklands.

After generous community contributions to fund the Stockland case before VCAT, Scale it Down are looking for further support for the second hearing. If you can toss any coin their way, you can donate through the website . . .

New noise garden for Sarah Sands?

At their November planning meeting, Council will consider an application for works at the former Sarah Sands Hotel, on the corner of Sydney Road and Brunswick Street, to build an open air beer garden. The proposed square metre outdoor area is to operate until 1am.

The former Sarah Sands Hotel has operated since the early 1900s and previously contained a beer garden along Black Street. This old beer garden has been removed and replaced with a seven storey apartment building approved under Planning Permit MPS/2017/112. The hotel holds a Late Night (general) Liquor Licence that allows for a maximum 500 patrons internally and 110 externally (total 610).

The new proposal seeks to amend the existing planning permit to allow removal of the roof located to the north-east of the site, creating a 30 square metre outdoor area on the first floor of the existing hotel. Amplified background music is proposed to be played in this outdoor area, while live bands and DJs will continue on the ground floor.

Caveat emptor for people who buy apartments that are part of the new project, some of which are located 10 metres from the proposed outdoor space! We are sure that all patrons will act with appropriate decorum.

Residents win deal for Cypriot Club

Brunswick Voice reports that a group of Brunswick East residents are claiming success in their campaign to block high-rise buildings in the northern end of Lygon Street, after the developers of a proposed apartment block made “significant compromises” at a mediation hearing in the Victorian Civil and Administrative Tribunal.

Details of the compromise offer by the Cyprus Community of Melbourne and Victoria, which is seeking to redevelop the two properties at 495–511 Lygon Street will remain confidential until the December Moreland Council meeting.

ResCode changes

In a major proposal to transform Victoria’s planning scheme, the State Government has launched a public consultation to change the ResCode provisions of the scheme. The proposed changes seem to have originated from a growing push from the developer lobby, calling on the State Government to deregulate planning in Victoria.

A DEWLP discussion paper proposes to apply a new model to residential development planning permit applications, replacing the existing ResCode assessment requirements (based on a system of objectives, standards and decision guidelines) with a new Performance Assessment Module (PAM).

Under the current system, ResCode specifies objectives, standards and decision guidelines for assessment of development applications. The objectives describe the desired outcomes that must be achieved. The standards specify the requirements to meet those objectives. The guidelines cite the issues Council must consider in deciding if an application meets the objectives.

Confused? Here’s an example. A local council may require screening to be used in residential developments to reduce overlooking of neighbouring properties. The objective is to protect privacy, but different screening might be used according to how standards and guidelines are interpreted. One VCAT ruling may require opaque screening, another will allow perforated holes to let air and light into the new project. While the perforated screening might meet the Rescode standards, do the holes meet the objective of privacy for the neighbours? The proposed changes are supposed to sort out this conflict, but there’s a real risk the new reforms could water down protections.

Planners have long debated if an objective is automatically met just because the corresponding standard is met. There are contradictory results shown in rulings by different members of the Victorian Civil and Administrative Tribunal (VCAT), who have issued varying interpretations of the operation of ResCode standards, compared to the objectives of the planning scheme.

The Department now argues “The new model will provide a more clear, certain and efficient way to assess planning permit applications under clauses 54, 55 and 58 (ResCode) of the VPP and could also be applied to other parts of Victoria’s planning schemes, such as overlays and particular provisions.” However the Victorian Planning Report has previously argued: “This is not an obscure or trivial point. Clauses 54, 55 and 56 [of ResCode] are amongst the most crucial and heavily used in the planning scheme, underpinning thousands of applications a year. The difference between deemed-to-comply and qualitative or performance based provisions is significant.”

Traffic and transport 

Dodgem cars in Nicholson street

For years, local residents and community organisations along Nicholson Street have been complaining about the danger of speeding and inattentive drivers, who are causing havoc in the neighbourhood. This month, there were seven crashes within five days, In the Holmes/Nicholson strip from Albion Street to Bell Street, causing hazards for drivers, pedestrians and residents.

In the April BRN newsletter, we reported on other crashes earlier in the year. The East Brunwick bends where Nicholson Street turns into Albion Street is notorious for a sharp turn where motorists approach too fast and lose control. In rainy conditions, drivers can also misjudge their movement across wet tram tracks, and many vehicles end up crossing the footpath and crashing into the front fence of local houses.

Of November’s SEVEN serious crashes and collisions, most ended with vehicles landing on the footpath or smashing through fences. One car flipped and rolled at the northern end of Nicholson Street, at the corner of Bell Street. The driver was trapped and had to be cut out of the vehicle by fire services.

Residents are concerned that the relevant authorities have been slow to come up with solutions to this problem. In Brunswick, crash-prone roads controlled by the state Department of Transport (DoT, formerly VicRoads) include Holmes Street, Nicolson Street and Melville Road, plus the tramline route along Dawson and Grantham Street. Further north, the major roads on the way to Bell Street are also managed by the DoT, who are slow to respond to resident concerns despite the pattern of crash locations. These roads have higher speed limits than nearby residential streets, despite recent planning rezoning for denser housing. Coburg High School parents have initiated a petition (link below) detailing hazards faced by pedestrians walking to school or to the No 1 tram terminus around the busy Nicholson/Bell/Elizabeth streets corner. Since their petition was launched, there have been at least two crashes in that area.

Representatives of BRN, Walk on Moreland and Pedestrian Safety for Nicholson Street all met with Moreland Council traffic staff last week to discuss pedestrian safety. We’ve called for Council and the Department of Transport to coordinate with residents and respond to safety concerns through introduction of more speed cameras, signage and other measures.

Local community activists Helen Kratzmann of Pedestrian Safety for Nicholson Street Coburg and Catherine Hall from the Coburg High School Active Transport Committee have launched a petition (link below). They have also spoken on the Yarra BUG Radio Show, explaining the hazards for local pedestrians and residents.

Which state has the worst public transport?


As they get back onto trams and trains post-lockdown, travellers are readjusting to sharing space on crowded public transport (NB new COVID safe rules in the attached cartoon!)

With the revival of public transport patronage, we can now re-commence the traditional debate:  which is the state capital with the worst public transport?

The great transport blog ‘Melbourne on Transit’ does a comparison looking at regularity, connectivity, reliability and more. Spoiler, Melbourne isn’t the worst, but . . .

Culture corner

Brunswick, the musical municipality of Australia

Congratulations to the three Victorian finalists in this year’s National Jazz Awards, jazz pianists Max Teakle, James Bowers and Kade Brown. And surprise, surprise, they’re all from Brunswick, the musical municipality of Australia.

As Kade Brown told The Age: “Pretty much half of the whole Melbourne jazz community is within walking distance and really, this is a great thing to have. You can play four nights a week and you can see everybody play every other night.”

With a high proportion of creative workers in our suburb, Brunswick has been hit hard by the refusal of the federal government to support the arts sector with Jobkeeper during lockdown. So it’s great to see local musos starting to make their mark again.

Is Brunswick Australia’s jazziest suburb? The Age, 22 November 2021

Watch films from dawn till dusk

Gallerygalleryinc, an art space in Hope Street, Brunswick, is currently seeking expressions of interest to participate in the Bulleke-Bek Brunswick International Screen Marathon.

Throughout December, a marathon of film screenings will run on a screen occupying all of the gallery’s north-facing window on Hope Street. All projection and screen-based works will be considered for screening, and there is no charge to enter.

People enjoying the summer night air can watch the films on the 3.5×2.4 m screen from Hope Street or Breese Street. Last year, screenings were held from dusk till dawn every Friday and Saturday night, but this year’s program will be determined by the number of submissions, so get your proposal together!

For more information, please get in touch before 1 December 2021 through email gallerygalleryinc@gmail.com

Vale Stuart Macintyre 1947-2021

It is with great sadness that we mark the death of Stuart Macintyre, one of Australia’s leading historians – and proud Brunswick resident!

Stuart died on Monday 22 November, aged 74, after a long illness.

Born in Melbourne in April 1947, he went to school at Scotch College and then studied history at the University of Melbourne. He later obtained a Master of Arts degree from Monash University (1971) then a PhD from the University of Cambridge (1975), for which he was awarded the Blackwood Prize.

In 1976, Stuart married Martha Bruton, a social anthropologist. They have two daughters, Mary and Jess.

Stuart’s many publications included contributions to The Oxford History of Australia; The Labour Experiment (1989); A Concise History of Australia (4th edition, 2016); and, with John Faulkner, a history of the Federal Parliamentary Labor Party. In 2003, Stuart and Anna Clark published The History Wars, which drew fire from conservatives in the Howard-era disputes over “black arm band history” and efforts to reinterpret the history of European settlement in Australia. A talented educator, Stuart also served the Council of the National Library of Australia and the State Library of Victoria, and on the national curriculum board established in 2008.

Locally, Stuart was a generous and encouraging figure, offering his expertise to the the Brunswick Coburg Anti-Conscription Campaign Committee organised to commemorate Brunswick and Coburg’s “No” vote in the 1916 and 1917 anti-conscription referendums. Sharing ideas, information and contacts, he supported this local initiative, drawing on his deep knowledge of local labour history (including the anti-conscription campaigns by then Brunswick resident John Curtin, later the Prime Minister of Australia!).

We join his many friends and students to send condolences to Stuart’s family, his many colleagues in labour history and academia, and his range of comrades in the labour and socialist movements.

The funeral for Professor Stuart Macintyre OA, FAHA, FASSA, will be held at Wyselaskie Hall, Ormond College on Tuesday 30 November at 10am.
