Hi all,

Update on the proposed Walmer Street redevelopment - *Have your say on 
the proposed Walmer Street Bridge redevelopment*

Date and times: Wednesday 13 July (6-8pm) and Saturday 16 July 

Venue: “Park Gardens” (607-629 Victoria Street) display suite, adjacent 
to Walmer Street on the south side of the Walmer Street bridge

Why you should attend: The two public meetings are an opportunity to set 
a new standard in attention to community amenity when confronting 
entrenched developer interests.

Following approaches to the Minister for Planning, his department has 
indicated it is preparing alternative design options that better address 
community concerns and which will be presented at the meetings.

Failure to invoke the Minister’s ruling in favour of a precinct that 
delivers an integrated, best practice approach to this vital public 
amenity will lock in a substandard asset for users over decades to come.

The sessions will occur at the Display Suite onsite at 607-627 Victoria 
Street, Abbotsford. Access to the Display Suite is towards the 
north-west corner at the ‘river end’ of Walmer Street.

*Please RSVP your attendance to Dianne Jones from Urbis no later than 
5:00 pm, Monday, 11 July 2016 via email djones at urbis.com.au or by 
telephone on 8663 4888.*

  Our ability to make a substantive impact will depend on a very strong 
turnout at the meetings. So please make every effort to attend.

Thank you ;)
