Three months of hearings for Fishermans Bend

28 Feb 2018

A planning panel has set aside three months to hear submissions about the government’s development ambitions in Fishermans Bend.

Starting on March 1, the panel is scheduled to hear more than 100 submissions from interested parties, including Docklands representatives.

On the list are the Docklands Chamber of Commerce, Yarra’s Edge Class Action Committee (YCAC) and interested residents.

Catherine Dawson has a two-hour time allocated to speak on behalf of YCAC, the group that is threatening to sue the government for damages if it proceeds with its proposed tram bridge from Collins St to Lorimer St.

Resident Keith Sutherland will be explaining to the panel an alternative solution involving an immersed tube which will perform the function of three proposed bridges – passenger tram, freight tram and bicycle bridge.

YCAC is holding a public rally in Point Park, Yarra’s Edge at 6.30 on March 13 to inform residents of developments and to gather further opposition to the tram bridge.
