    Petitioning Maribyrnong City Council

    STOP DANGEROUS INDUSTRIAL ACTIVITY ON MEPHAN STREET, MARIBYRNONG

    STOP DANGEROUS INDUSTRIAL ACTIVITY ON MEPHAN STREET, MARIBYRNONG Please support our Petition and attend the Council meeting. Every day the lives of our children and elderly are at risk due to the presence of industrial factories and warehouses on Mephan Street. The Mephan Street precinct is an island of industrial factories and warehouses surrounded by residential housing, a child early learning centre, primary school and aged care facility. Every day loud and polluting factories operate within Mephan Street, and heavy trucks pass while children risk crossing the street to school and early learning centre. Maribyrnong City Council wants to keep the industrial zoning and encourage dirty, noisy industrial development by introducing a new Planning Scheme Amendment C143. Local residents opposed the proposed Planning Scheme Amendment C143 in March and April 2018. Maribyrnong City Council and Planning Panels Victoria disregarded the local residents and have recommended the Amendment. It is up to you, your family, friends and all of us as a local community to stop this Amendment C143 that will encourage unsuitable development on Mephan Street and put the lives of our children and elderly at risk. We want to see the zoning changed to encourage residential housing development. Not multi-unit and apartment development. We have one last chance to oppose the Amendment, when Councillors meet to vote on the Amendment. Please support the Petition, attend the Council meeting and oppose the amendment. Join us and add your name to the Petition. Join us and attend the Council meeting held at: Date: Tuesday 26 June 2018 Time: 6.30pm Address: Council chamber (Level 1), Maribyrnong City Council, Corner Hyde and Napier Streets, Footscray FRIENDS AND FELLOW RESIDENTS, WE NEED YOUR SUPPORT
