Last year, Crown submitted an application to construct Australia’s tallest building on Queensbridge St.  Inexplicably, the Government has chosen to by-pass all normal planning processes to push this through.  

This mammoth development is in breach of the Government's own planning guidelines, and will have a major impact on the city of Melbourne, including:

- shadowing of the Shrine of Remembrance

- massive increase in traffic volumes for streets south of the Yarra

- likely creation of 'wind tunnel' effects

- severe crowding for residents and businesses of surrounding buildings

This Government was elected on the promise of following proper process.  Send them a message that we are fed up with pandering to the big end of town!  

... and tell the Opposition to reject this proposal in Parliament until it has been through a proper planning process.
