Brian Murray, on behalf of Nillumbik Ratepayers Association, asked Council:
‘Has Council been approached by Mr Ondarchie or any other politician in regards to the potential development of Nillumbik land opposite Laurimar or elsewhere. Which Councillors and or officers were party to the discussions and what was the outcome of any discussions?’
Cr Peter Perkins, Mayor, responded that no, Council has not been approached other than the request from the Minister for Planning in late 2011 to identify any significant anomalies in the urban growth boundary. Council has a very clear policy position on this matter.
Council advised the Minister that there are no significant anomalies to the urban growth boundary in Nillumbik and that Council is committed to maintaining the current green wedge zones in accordance with the Green Wedge Management Plan.
