Time: 12:24 pm for 1 pm start. (Rally to end around 2 pm when Parliament commences. Come and sit in the public gallery.)
 
Date: Tuesday 22 June 2010
 
Location: Steps of Parliament Spring Street Melbourne.
 
Rationale for Rally:
 
At the next sitting of Parliament commencing at 2 pm next Tuesday on 22 June 2010, Planning Minister Madden will be putting a resolution to the Upper House for ratification of VC 67 Planning Amendment.
It is the first item on the agenda. This is to approve extension of Melbourne's urban growth boundary which means rezoning 47,000 hectares of land from rural to residential for new housing developments. It will involve destruction of Green Wedges and loss of 40% of our foodbowl. It will also increase density (i.e. high rise) of residential development, including along tram and bus routes.
If the Coalition (Liberals and Nationals) plus the DLP member vote with the ALP it will spell disaster.
