Another fantastic turn-out with 45 residents attending a meeting to form a Residents Group. The decision was made to call the group Save Ivanhoe and a coordinating group was elected to represent the interests of residents.
The keys concerns of the group can be summarised as:
1. Disappointment with the Process - lack of consultation with residents
2. Height of proposed buildings (3, 4, 5, 6 7 & 8 storey towers)
3. Traffic & Parking congestion
4. Negative impact on the character of Ivanhoe
Residents are encouraged to ask their neighbours whether they have put in a submission to Council.
Monday 29 August, 6pm-7.30pm Masonic Temple Ivalda - 40 Salisbury Ave Ivanhoe
Wednesday 31 August, 6pm-7.30pm Masonic Temple Ivalda - 40 Salisbury Ave Ivanhoe
Residents are also encouraged to correspond with their Councillors and Local Members about their concerns with the plan.
Please also let your thoughts be known at your local and Melbourne based newspapers.
