community loads slingshot

The No Maccas in the Hills group are encouraging community members to attend the upcoming VCAT hearing for McDonalds in Tecoma.

There's no doubt this has been a David and Goliath battle with the next battle scene set for Monday 6 August at VCAT.

It would be terrific to see as many community members as possible attend the hearing as a show of support for those people who are submitting on behalf of the community. It would be a great morale boost for them to be supported by a gallery of community members.

TVAG and No Maccas in the Hills have said "the community has worked tirelessly to voice their opposition to this development, put in hundreds of unpaid, after hours work and fundraised to mount this battle. While round one resulted in council unanimously rejecting McDonalds development, round two at VCAT is critical"

I will be attending the VCAT hearings, I hope you can too.

Details are:
When: Monday 6 Aug to Monday 13 Aug from 10am to 4pm
Where: VCAT, 55 King Street, Melbourne
Commuting: last carriage Belgrave Train departing 8:31am (8:33 – Tecoma, 8:35 – Upwey, 8:39 - UFTG)

I also know that No Maccas in the Hills are fundraising to pay for some planning expertise, if you'd like to know more click here
