Thanks to some dedicated volunteers and the best of the weekend weather RAiD had a most successful morning garnering 13 new sign-ups for membership and a couple of donations without wanting to become members & a few new additional email addresses for our activity & news database. Well done & thanks to those dedicated souls for giving up a Saturday morning.
We all want quality development that is citizen friendly and most of us accept and understand that increasing urban density is a must but do we need Hong Kong style high rise like the Woolworths proposed development at Vaughan & Canning in North Melbourne? Are there are alternatives which are much more sensible? If you check out this in todays Age you might get a different view on the alternatives, however if rumor is to be believed prehaps 30 million for the Vaughan Terrace land has put some lower limits on density with out making a loss. Have a read and write some letter to the Age & Woolworths. http://www.theage.com.au/business/property/making-rooms-at-the-top-20120424-1xj9b.html
A quick check of the Ministers Website shows no new press statements about the proposed North Melbourne Woolworths towers set for Canning and Vaughan Street.
There was a concern something might happen in the shadow of Easter.
Here is the link to the Ministers Press releases if you want to keep casting a casual eye over it yourself.
