RAID@3051 Inc is a community group formed in 2011 to respond to the proposed Woolworths development in the residential area bounded by Macaulay Road and Canning St, North Melbourne. RAID is concerned about the impact of increased density, rapid increase in population and traffic on the already overstretched community infrastructure. RAID is seeking immediate traffic calming measures to make the area safer for pedestrians. RAID is also urging the City of Melbourne and State planning bodies to lock in a range of open spaces in all future developments. We continue to lobby the City of Melbourne for Gardiners Reserve to be enlarged and for the immediate provision of a community hub in the Hotham Hill area and in all new precincts.
Residents About Integrated Development (RAID@3051) considers future planning needs to include not only physical infrastructure but also enhancement of transport, heritage building and streetscapes and proactive planning of community infrastructure- active and passive recreation, education, community services, landscaping, affordable housing, library and flexible community spaces, etc.)
RAID endeavors to work constructively with all involved in 3051
RAID is strongly committed to stakeholder engagement.
