Telstra Pole Decision

Telstra Pole Decision

Hello everyone,

the decision about the Telstra Pole tower thingie has been called into this week Council Meeting.

Wednesday 10th December 2014 7pm – agenda here:

Here is the information about the proposal for the meeting:

Local residents of Eureka Street have been doing a mighty job talking with council officers, Councillors and their neighbours about the issue. Whether you agree with the development or not, these residents have been very clear in their message:

  • that the community has not be consulted enough,
  • other potential sites been identified nor assessed,
  • we need a more innovative design for a heritage area. (check the images of what it will look like below)

It’s not too late to make a submission, and if you are keen come and support the residents at the meeting this week. Heck even put your name down to talk at the meeting, here’s how:

  • Contact Governance at the Ballarat City Council on 03 5320 5535
  • you MUST do this before 4.30pm on the day of the meeting (Wed Dec 10th)

Surely we can get a better result from what is predicted?

    I’ll be there. Surely we can find a better way to have technology and not want to move out of town.

  3. David says:

    I noticed item 12.6 on the agenda too. P<LP/2014/829. A 4 story high unit development (95 Units) in St. Pauls way. This has the potential to block the view from the fire brigade tower across the city, a view that has been used for 150 years and is always popular in the brigade tower tours.
