VCAT Mediation is listed for 4 December 2012.
A huge amount of work has been done to help us build our community case. Local Architect & Committee Member Peter Hogg of ph-architects.com has been coordinating the executive team and we have been working with the tireless Jane Good of Brand Partners(RAID Solicitors) to prepare the RAID position for mediation. The substantive Hearing is listed for February 2013.
On behalf of all those involved in RAiD and associated groups and individuals thank you from all of us in advance for the hours put in by Peter Hogg, Jane Good ( both who have their own business’s to run) as well other genreous people who have given us so much time and support.
We need cash to fund ourselves at VCAT but more importantly we want new members. There has never been a more important time to join RAiD 3051 or to make a donation to help us. If you are not currently a member please join now by completing the attached RAID membership form and returning with $2.00 also to 431 Dryburgh Street, North Melbourne. Membership forms will also be available at the AGM or you can down load a RAiD3051 Membership form at this link.
Thank you to RAID members who have made donations to the RAID VCAT appeal. Our target of $10,000 is in need of a boost in donations to ensure that we are in the position to engage relevant expert witnesses for the 7 day hearing scheduled for late February 2013.
Jane Good and her team at Brand Partners have donated many hours of work to RAID but inevitably there are ‘hard’ expenses that have to be met. Address cheques to RAID @ 3051 Inc and mail to PO Box 2007, Hotham Hill, 3051.
Include your contact details and an acknowledgement and receipt will be provided. Alternatively please advise through the RAID email address (firstname.lastname@example.org) of your interest in donating and you will be contacted by a member of the committee.
An don’t forget an easy way to support us is you can sign our online petition any time or share it with your friends we are targeting 200 online signatures. Click on the RAiD3051 Petition Link Here to have a look or sign up.
