Letter to the Editor: Stop Nepean Becoming A “Brunswick-By-The-Bay”

As published in the Southern Peninsula News 12th June 2018:

If you want to protect the amenity and character of our established neighbourhoods and rural hinterland then vote Liberal at the state election in November this year.

Thanks to Labor, our General Residential Zone has been trashed and will now become a location for 3-storey apartment-style developments irrespective of the established character of your neighbourhood.

Labor have without any consultation with local residents, communities or council, replaced existing nine metre height limits with an eleven metre limit and ‘as of right’ approval for three storey development.

In 2014 the Coalition government introduced the Mornington Peninsula Localised Planning Statement to help protect the unique coastal, rural and conservation areas of the Mornington Peninsula townships and hinterland.

Yet, just three years later, Daniel Andrews has unilaterally decided to tear up the previous Coalition Government’s sensible and balanced reforms in favour of inappropriate overdevelopment of our townships.

These changes affecting over 24,000 house lots across the Mornington Peninsula and under Labor there will be more to come.

Make no mistake, Labor and the Greens want their own ‘Brunswick-by-the-Bay’ down here, but only a Liberal government will protect what we love about our Peninsula.
