Community Association - July 2010

30 Jun 2010

Welcome to our new members who have recently joined. Anybody else wishing to join is encouraged to contact Paige Jay on (JavaScript must be enabled to view this email address) who will be happy to assist.

Our DCA annual general meeting is to take place on Thursday, July 15 on the first floor of the Lend Lease building at 825 Bourke St. The meeting will be preceded at 7.30pm with a presentation by a Vivas Lend Lease director of the planned next phase of development at Victoria Harbour.  I am sure this will spark interest and discussion. We appreciate the assistance of Lend Lease staff in providing the meeting space and the presentation. Story boards are scheduled for display in the ground floor foyer. Light refreshments will be provided after the meeting. We expect a sizeable attendance and look forward to your company.

The DCA has supported the complaints to VicUrban from residents against the proposed Serrata development on the vacant green lot in Bourke St opposite the NAB. With due respect to Lend Lease, we have always argued that the lot should be retained as public open space of which there is little left in Docklands.

Our long-awaited DCA website should finally be launched in about a week. It will have rotating scenes of Docklands in the banner and plenty of content. We encourage you to visit it at http://www.docklandscommunityassociation.com. Any comments are welcome. The content will be updated as required.

Council and VicUrban are getting moving with planning for infrastructure projects, which include the expanded Hub community centre redevelopment and library, community boating hub, land-based sporting and fitness facilities and a primary school. Actual construction is some time off.

I will be part of a small deputation of CoRBA members (combined resident groups) scheduled to meet with Planning Minister Justin Madden on July 13 to discuss planning issues including the need for community consultation.

I had a pleasant time at the Docklands News luncheon on June 18. It provides a great opportunity to catch up with local contacts on an informal basis.

If any member, or reader for that matter, has any suggestions they wish to put forward to the DCA in respect to activities or issues to take up on their behalf you are welcome to do so by contacting us on the email address above.

Good to talk with you again and we will continue to keep in touch

Sincerely
Roger Gardner
President DCA
