Action needed to save roundabout
Eltham Community Action Group (ECAG) is reaching out to you because 2900 people signed a petition to the State Government in 2019 horrified at the proposed removal of the Fitzsimons Lane Eltham roundabout and hundreds of trees yet their concerns do not appear to have been taken into account.
Fitzsimons Lane (Eltham end) roundabout – Redesign rather than Replacement!
Without any consultation since March 2020 and under the cover of the COVID-19 lockdown Major Road Projects Victoria (MRPV) has been finalising the design and preparing to build a massively overdesigned signalised intersection at this site.
Trees not in designated Bushfire Prone Areas safe from 10/30!
ECAG has long been concerned about the indiscriminate use of the 10/30 bushfire exemptions which has led to clear felling of many urban Eltham blocks by developers who took advantage of the exemptions to remove vast numbers of trees for purposes other than bushfire mitigation.
Last chance to make a submission in support of Heritage Listing for the Eltham War Memorial Buildings
Following ECAG’s nomination of the Eltham War Memorial Buildings for inclusion in the Victorian Heritage Register, we are disappointed that the Executive Director of Heritage Victoria has made a recommendation that the buildings should not be included.
