Protest to Council

Royal Park Protection Group sought legal advice on what protection could be provided to the Royal Park regarding drilling planned.

Paul Leitinger and Julianne Bell, as our representatives. attended the MCC meeting on July 10th, 2012 of the Council’s Future Melbourne Committee’s stated position.

They provided submissions opposing the drilling and pointing out the Council

On May 8th the Council had stated it “was opposed to use of any parkland for the purpose of any roadworks or associated activities”.

The members of the Committee listened to our proposal that a management plan with penalties was required as a minimum and agreed to put in place such a plan with protection measures. We were thanked for the legal opinion and our submission.
