This petition made change with 221 supporters!
We started this petition because we want to present a more accurate and representative message to the City of Victor Harbor Council regarding public support of the proposed rezoning of land on three sites on the outskirts of Victor Harbor. It will be the NEW Council that will have the final vote on this issue, so there is still time to have your voice heard via this petition and by taking the time to question all the Candidates prior to the election so you know who you're voting for.
There has been a strong public reaction towards the perceived inadequacies of the official Council public consultation process (which lasted for eight weeks and has now concluded), with many people expressing their dismay that the official results of the submissions were swayed by a few business interests and are not representative of the majority view. Many locals have expressed in The Times and on social media that they were not aware of the public consultation process to start with.
This issue is important because if these three sites are rezoned for commercial use, then it will allow some much needed and welcomed retail development in the Victor Harbor area. We welcome retail development because it will encourage more locals to shop locally (keeping more money in our area), and it will create much needed jobs for now and into the future.
Those who have made written submissions will have the opportunity to speak to Council at the Submission Hearing on December 8th. Either myself or my wife Jo will present the findings of this online petition at that meeting, to give the Victor Harbor Council a more representative message from the people and on behalf of those residents who want to see our area grow and prosper.
Please take the time to sign this petition - with your full name and confirmation that you live in the Victor Harbor area. Share it with your friends and let's get the message out to as many locals as we can prior to the meeting on December 8th!
