My constituency question is for the attention of the Minister for Public Transport and it relates to the proposed 13-storey sky tower development at Ormond railway station.
This is another secret development being undertaken by Daniel Andrews that the community had no knowledge of.
Many residents have contacted me to voice their concerns about the sky tower and are also now asking for updated information regarding this proposed development.
The government has provided little to no information regarding this project since a public hearing was held in early February of this year. Following that hearing a report undertaken by the Victorian Transport Projects Advisory Committee was submitted to the minister, as it is obliged to within 20 business days of the last hearing. Well, that was months ago.
My question to the minister on behalf of the many anxious residents within the area is:
Can she provide an update to the house on the proposed development and the details of the report so that the residents of Ormond and the surrounding areas of Caulfield and Bentleigh understand exactly what was recommended to the Andrews government at the Ormond sky tower site?
