Community Meeting: Wednesday 15th June 2011 6.30pm Hoboken Cafe, 3 Hosier LaneYou are probably aware that this week our precinct was issued with a planning permit application – TP – 2011 – 88 a proposed development incorporating a new commercial area to be added to the existing Secure Car Park after it is refigured within the plan.
If you have not had time to down load the proposal or look at it, I can only suggest that you come along to the meeting on wednesday – we have received a copy of all the drawings and the planning proposal from the council and Alison Fairley has kindly offered her architectural expertise to discuss the project with the community so that we as individuals and as a community can make calculated and informed comment on the plans .
Just so you have a little insight into the enormity of the project, it involves excavation and removal of a serious amount of the building that currently houses the exit on Flinders street of the car park – there will be additional building added to the top of the 9 floors of the current car park on the Flinders Lane end and there is promise in looking at the plans that it will take a lot longer than 12 months for completion.
I encourage you all to make time to come to this meeting – do not allow this proposal to go ahead and then complain about the effect it is having on you, your business, your suppliers, your residence or your place of work – if the Collins Street development that is currently causing grief in Flinders Lane has effected you, this will have an effect that is 10 fold worse.
Now is the time of action – we only have 12 days, all of which are valuable and need to be used with precision.
