The role of the Flemington Association
The Association supports the Council’s approach of working with residents to find solutions to local problems, rather than imposing solutions developed by consultants. Working with residents and listening to their views increases the prospect that workable and long-lasting solutions will be found.
The Association also seeks to inform residents about the changes. For this reason, the Association was involved in the distribution of the flyer advocating support for the changes.
We have received feedback which questions our role in the flyer and, in particular, attributing our logo and name to a flyer advocating one side of the debate, given the multitude of views amongst residents. The Association’s response to that feedback is available here.
The Association welcomes the community debate about the right solution for traffic and parking in Flemington Hill. The Association encourages all residents to get involved in the conversation and to submit their views to Council, both through the survey and by contacting Council.
