Congratulations to the Stop the Elsternwick Towers (STET) group for yesterday’s well attended (hundreds) rally.
Amid existing, and under construction, high density dwellings surrounded by heritage areas, residents gathered to show their support for the Elsternwick Village’s vision statement – ie. “a vibrant cultural and entertainment precinct, which embraces its historic character and identity”.
Their message came through loud and clear
- the 10 & 14 stories Woolworths redevelopment of ABC Selwyn Street site is both inappropriate and excessive, and
- Glen Eira Council’s inability to complete in less than 6 years what it originally proposed to do in 1 year – ie undertake proper planning via Structure Planning – was unacceptable to residents.
