Dear Neighbours – the Woolworth’s development is getting quite a bit of media coverage.  Two major items today – article in the AGE (p. 6) refer to online link noting that the photograph of the proposed development has been replaced by the Minister for Planning in the online version.  Channel 10 was on site this morning and a number of residents rallied at short notice and several people were interviewed.   Expecting to get coverage on tonight’s news program – understand it starts at 5.00 pm.  Eugene Arocco was interviewed on 3AW this morning – putting the NM football clubs position as supportive of residents’ concerns.  Peter Hogg – RAID spokesperson expects to be contacted / will be contacting additional media outlets and following up on those that have already given us some coverage.
