Note from Convenor

Dear Members and Friends,

Wishing you all the best for 2015

Thankyou all our loyal members and friends for your wonderful support through the year. Let’s look forward to being able to enjoy our park forever more!

Our thanks to the incoming Victorian Labor Government for the promise to cancel of the project and the Greens for their stand against the EW Link. Thank you to the hundreds of community organisations, local councils, in particular Yarra, Moreland, Moonee Valley and Darebin, inner city residents and local MP’s. Everyone who fought helped save our precious Royal Park.

However there are still outstanding issues to be resolved eg the inclusion of Royal Park on the State Heritage Register and the need to delete exemptions provided by the Napthine Government for the East West Link to be constructed through the Park.

The fight will continue  in the New Year.

When the EWL contracts are finally cancelled we plan to hold a big celebration in the park.

Yours sincerely
Paul Leitinger
