CLOSED – 1400 signatures handed to Local MP Mary Wooldridge Nov 24th, 2011 for submission to state Government at the last sitting before end of year.
A copy was also tabled at Manningham Council meeting 28/11/2011 by Cr Jennifer Yang. thankyou to Mary & Jennifer.
Note: Council wouldn’t accept it as a petition as it was “addressed to State Gov” not Manningham Council. But it still was able to be “tabled” for information and reference, and questions from the public at question time. So if you are ever preparing a petition, Address it to State Gov. and local council – get the best mileage.
Thank you ALL that contributed, Kudos to Michelle for the biggest individual collection – well done.
This Petition is designed to encourage State Government to recognise, and change the limits of developments in our side streets.
You can down load a copy of our Petition to change DDO8 RAIDID 2011-09-17, print it, get all of your friends to sign it, then fax or post it back in – address is on the bottom.
There are of course lots of rules about making a petition for Government, one is it must be signed paper – online does not count.
The words of the Petition are below – the restriction of two story, and no exceptions beyond DD08 should improve things significantly, while not perfect, it is a level of change that has a chance of passing. This is a combination of layman’s terms, and Planning speak as reviewed by a sympathetic town planner.
TO: THE LEGISLATIVE ASSEMBLY OF VICTORIA
The petition of: R.A.I.D.I.D – Residents Against Inappropriate Development in Doncaster
Draws to the attention of the House: The over- development of courts and side streets in the DDO8 areas of Manningham.
The petitioners therefore request that the Legislative Assembly of Victoria:
Change the zoning of DDO8 courts and side streets in Manningham to limit new developments to 2 storeys high and mandate DDO8 planning controls as absolute maximum limits. This will still easily meet planned 2030 growth.
