Ormond railway station - Petition
13 September 2016
We, the undersigned citizens of Victoria, call on the Legislative Council of Victoria to note:The foundation deck for the development of an up to 13-storey residential tower on the Frankston railway line on North Road above Ormond station has been constructed without informing or consulting the local community;
Established low-rise suburbs should not be destroyed and permanently scarred by the construction of inappropriate, high-rise overdevelopment on railway land, particularly in the absence of community consultation; andthe local community does not support or consent to the construction of a residential tower of up to 13 storeys above Ormond station.
We therefore call on the Andrews Labor government to abandon its plans for the inappropriate overdevelopment of the Ormond station site and instead proceed with a development that is smaller in scale and more in keeping with the low-rise village atmosphere of Ormond.
