Public rally over bridge

05 Feb 2018

The Yarra’s Edge Class Action Committee (YCAC) is holding a rally on March 13 to build opposition to the proposed Fishermans Bend tram bridge.

Spokesperson Catherine Dawson said the family-friendly rally would be held at Point Park at 6.30pm.

Ms Dawson said YCAC would update residents on the latest developments, including an alternative proposal by local resident Keith Sutherland.

“Everyone is welcome to come down and enjoy a sausage sizzle,” she said.

“It’s a chance to meet with other concerned residents and show your support of YCAC.”

She said YCAC had secured a two-hour time slot in April to present to the panel hearing submissions on the recently-released Draft Fishermans Bend Framework.

“There have been so many submissions made to the planning review panel that there is going to be something like 12 weeks of hearings. This is unprecedented,” she said.

“YCAC will be speaking to its submission as will more than 100 other groups put forward their submissions.”

“This is clearly an election issue now and both sides of politics should be taking notice. There is a huge amount of public unrest of this issue and it will not be going away.”

“In fact, it looks like the fight has just begun really. Once it is heard at the hearing the $300 million dollar class action that is underway it will be interesting to see the response from the review panel.”
